Brilliant article! Thanks for calling out Mueller's on his hypocritical stance on patents.
Last year, he was telling us how successful Apple was in enforcing its (significant) patents against Samsung in every jurisdiction outside of Korea, and how poor Samsung's track record in their attack against Apple. Now, all of a sudden he is telling us the exact opposite - how horribly Apple is doing in all "neutral" jurisdictions and how great Samsung is doing. Really, Florian? Do you even read your old blogs before posting this stuff.
Another example - last year he took a strong stand against Motorola's attempt to extort money from Apple for the Qualcomm baseband chip used in the iPhone (even though Qualcomm had duly licensed this patent from Motorola). But now, he is backing Samsung in the case over the Infineon baseband chip, even thought the parallels to the Motorola-Quallcom case are exact.
For reasons only he knows, Mueller's has done an about-face on some key issues, and is now taking absurdly pro-Samsung positions. He has completely lost all credibility on this issue - not because he is suddenly anti-Apple, but because he is hypocritical and anti-logic.
