    I've been telling everyone Apple don't do business the right way and this just proves it.

    I think the courts should order Apple to stop sueing and start making a better device.
    LMAO I think we are all a little dumber after reading this post.

    I think most of you missed the part in the NYT quotes that said "spending by Apple and Google on patent lawsuits and unusually big-dollar patent purchases." So they're not just spending on patent lawsuits, but they are buying patents (and technology) too. Those patent purchases include buying other companies and intellectual property. The NYT article is a bit misleading in that respect in that they seem to be implying that Apple (and Google) is spending more on litigation than on R&D.

    No actually that's not what the article is implying at all. Did you even bother reading it?

    Modmyi's cut and scaled version of this article implies that.

    The NYT article is actually quite well done, and it has nothing to do with the litigation between Samsung and Apple - or any other company. It gives examples, but nothing more. It is more about the patent system, and how it hinders innovation, and where our innovation now days is coming from - and how the major corporations inhibit that growth abusing the broken system. And it's fact, it's true. Innovation comes from these small companies - for example, like Siri - Apple didn't create it, they bought it. It went through the patent office 11 times since 2004 - as a concept - and as a finished product in the form of Siri.

    Read the article - it's interesting in the least and outlines problems. People here are so biased they don't see the problem.

    I did actually read the NYT article, but I didn't comment on the NYT article, I commented on this article and the readers' comments on the article.

    As for the patents problem, yes there may be a problem but Apple didn't create the system. Apple has been copied by competitors on several major products and decided to try to protect their property as much as possible and to slow down the rip-offs. The fact that they are the largest company in the business makes them a target for patent suits as well. While overly broad patents may hinder competition, properly issued patents don't hinder innovation, they hinder others copying your innovation and marketing it. That's not to say that the patent system can't be made better. That would be a good thing.
