Oh my goodness I wonder how much money and time was spent in finding something for Apple to retaliate against Motorola with. This is getting out of hand and is both disgusting and outright childish on both parties. Shame on both of you. I hope the judge throws this out of court, it's a ridiculous law suit and there is no reason for Apple to retaliate other then pride.
Stop it you two, I'm going to call your fathers.
" I hope the judge throws this out of court"
"Judge Richard Posner has issued an order upholding some of"
He just issued a ruling.. the EXACT opposite of throwing it out of court. The judge found merit in Apple's argument. A case gets thrown out when neither side's arguments hold merit.
"no reason for Apple to retaliate other then pride"
this is a patent suit - there are VERY LARGE SUMS OF MONEY AT STAKE.
this is what can happen when a patent holder is on the winning side:
Apple won a temporary injunction (that was eventually overturned) which means Samsung was not allowed to sell their tablet in Australia while the injunction was in effect.
doesn't take a genius to figure out what could happen to other touchscreen phones if Apple wins this.
