There are victims to Samsung's patent thieving shenanigans, as Pioneer found out.

 

"The same thing happened with Pioneer, a Japanese multi-national that specializes in digital entertainment products, which holds patents related to plasma televisions. Samsung once again decided to use the technology without bothering to pay for it. In 2006, Pioneer sued in federal court in the Eastern District of Texas, so Samsung countersued. The Samsung claim was thrown out before trial, but one document revealed in the course of the litigation was particularly damaging—a memo from a Samsung engineer stating explicitly that the company was violating the Pioneer patent. A jury awarded Pioneer $59 million in 2008. But with appeals and continued battles looming, the financially troubled Pioneer agreed to settle with Samsung for an undisclosed amount in 2009. By then, it was too late. In 2010, Pioneer shut down its television operations, tossing 10,000 people out of work."

Samsung are old hands at this game.

Better than my Bose, better than my Skullcandy's, listening to Mozart through my LeBron James limited edition PowerBeats by Dre is almost as good as my Sennheisers.

Samsung benefitted most from them. They also could have altered the OS so it wouldn't infringe and they didn't.

Perhaps Samsung see patent infringement, the trials and any fines incurred just a normal cost of production.

How does one alter an OS to prevent developers from searching and replacing certain strings in their own apps?

I relate Samsung's penalty to driving 120mph through a residential neighborhood and getting a $10 fine.

 

Or perhaps being very rich and never putting plates on your car, or parking in handicapped spots all the time.

Steve was a unique individual. I'd really like to know what was his thinking on this. Did he believe the law was irrelevant because he couldn't waste his time adhering to it? Perhaps a dissecting job for future armchair psychologists.

The samsung lawyer are stupid ass. So I am going to fire samsung CEO and lawyer because they are very evil South Korean. So we need a unclear war for South Korea. I don't trust the Samsung South Korean lies. I knew everything about the samsung are doing copy the kitchen appliances, TVs, smartphones, DVD players, vacuum cleaners, small appliances, cameras and MP3 players from real brands products. I feel like beat the samsung up for stealing everything from this United States. They did alway break of law in the United States.
