Florian Mueller backs Samsung legal strategy of trivializing Apple's technology - Page 3

post #81 of 82

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.

Firstly, Apple wasn't first to come up with "slide to unlock"... http://www.gsmhistory.com/vintage-mobiles/#neonode_n1_2004

 

Apple wasn't even the first with a capacitive touch screen, round corners or look and feel of a smart phone: http://www.gsmhistory.com/vintage-mobiles/#prada

 

What Apple do have is the deep pockets to sue others and claim they were first..

Apple have good marketing on top of a good product which was made up of a lot of components from other places. Cudo's to them for the product, keep producing more and compete in the market place - try suing less, it hurts your customers by holding back progress of technology by spending $ on lawyers instead.

 

Maybe neonode should have sued apple for $40/phone for using slide to unlock!

Or LG, another $40/phone, for Look and Feel of a rounded rectangle smartphone with a capacitive screen..  sheesh 

 

OMG, not this again!!

 

You really need to stop posting about stuff you don't understand. The Prada and Neonode claims were debunked months ago. You only dig these up because you have nothing useful to say. Nobody here is going waste their time educating you on these topics.
