I still think it's absurd that a government agency is allowed to own copyrights. Copyrights are meant to promote the arts and foster competition, governments fall outside of that in my opinion.

Not competing, as in, Apple doesn't sell railroad passenger or freight service and the Swiss Federal Railway doesn't sell phones, software or computers.

Is this one of those jokes where you have to go and look up the answer and it's something absurd? I love jokes that make me work for it.

You can look it up but I did the hard work for you. I may disagree with you from time to time but I'd never steer you wrong.

But clocks were being discussed and they both have the same functionality. It's not like those Braun pictures idiots post claiming Apple used, now those are non competing.

Cool huh, child labourers make Samsung stuff cheaper.

 

This has absolutely no relevance to this discussion, nor my point, whatsoever.

It's actually all over the Internet, this is the only site not reporting it. Yes it's only a clock but a company that's suing others for copying left and right shouldn't be copying anything.

Is this how you responded to Apple vs. Samsung?

 

I'm calling you a hypocrite here. Go ahead and defend yourself, or admit that it's one in the same.

These cases are not being litigated in a vacuum, or as stand alone. As someone who on payday signs the front of the check (an not the back of them) this is what I see being played out.


Why is where you sign a check relevant to anything? Apple has some LTE patents so why are you assuming Apple violated anybody else's patents?

Employer vs. Employee thought process. Producer vs. User thought process. Not intended to set myself above others, just my observation as one who makes these type decisions with money at risk. The fact that a explanation was needed proves the point.
