    When I refer to karma it is because of injunction Apple filed in Australia and Germany against Samsung, based on black rectangular shape with rounded corner? Patent on a black rectangular shape with rounded corners is not a joke to you?

    Nobody looks good in a war - and this is a war about protectionism.
    And given that nobody wins a war (and they're expensive to wage), it's difficult to imagine what drove Apple to start it in the first instance.

    I suspect they simply did the American thing and sued.
    I wonder if they'd still have sued if they could have foreseen a possible product ban in one of the world's biggest markets.

    Ultimately, they never needed to sue with such a quality product range - and in choosing to do so, have wasted a lot on legal fees that could have been better invested in themselves.
    They just made themselves look like foot-stomping brats.
    Little wonder so many enjoy seeing them get kicked in the nuts.
    Fecking mugs.

    Fanboys are mad when a company does something Apple does all the time. Steal an idea, patent it, and then sue everyone who uses it. Yep I for one could care less on this one.

    Thats where you are wrong, Apple will only have a patent for the new iPhone in the USA, you can only patent a unreleased product in 1 country's. When it is released they will apply for a fast-track patent in other country's which will usaly be granted in a few days.

    What??? In China you can only patent one rectangle at a time???/ What kinda nonsense is this??? In the United States when you patent a retangle you get them all!!!! Pay up Apple $$$$$ that will be 1.2 Billion. Gotta love those foreign patent laws, Apple doesn't have the same influence in China as a the court down the street from Cupertino.

    From TFA: "While this case appears patently ridiculous (sorry for that) to the layman, Chinese courts are notoriously pro China no matter how insane the case." Sure, like precisely we all think that US courts are notoriously pro-US no matter how insane the case (Apple vs. Samsung).

    So when Apple does this exact same crap (based on design) its ok? your life, not ours my friend, is pitiful.

    Actually, gooPhone will get backfire. Apple already made the device such as prototype and aslo patent the design of the phone before even going to mass production. You have to remember that apple have material evidence and witness of making the phone in the factory way before gooPhone even make a clone of it. Patent law isn't when the material is put to sell, but it depend on when the design is in place or patented it.

    "can’t afford to spend weeks toiling over a suit with a patent troll."

    Yes actually, they can. That's one of the most ridiculous things ever said about Apple.

    Apple did not patent the design.
    If the design was already patented then this Goophone would not be able to patent this phone.
    As to the patent law in China it might be "whomever patent it first gets it". Don't matter if there are people who witness your design before the product came out, or full documentation of the development.
    This is exactly what Apple and big corporate company want to do to patent law in the U.S., unless you patent it first then you did not invent it first even if you have documentation of when you invented the product.
