Either way, these patent wars are really stupid and in the end will wind up costing us (the consumers). there should be no such thing as software patents and hardware only for truly unique features, not vague sh!t like "a rectangle with rounded corners."

I sue you. I sue YOU. I sue them.You can't sell your phones in that country. You can't walk here.HEY YOU, quit talking on that phone and drive. You can't text and drive. My phone is better than your phone. YEA?!! Well my phone cant beat up your tab and your phone so take that. BLAH BLAH BLAH. Damn high school B.S. Some of the smartest people on earth and they can't play nice together. As consumers, we decide who fails and who succeeds. Not the corp. or a court. All these lawsuits prove nothing. Just stop already and make your product and let the consumers decide.

Crapple has pretty much resolved the whole "competitor copying" issue by continuing to produce the SAME EXACT PRODUCTS over and over again

This is an article about a European patent infringement lawsuit.
This is not an article about the quality of usernames, the intelligence of members here, nor is it about defending the type of smartphone/tablet you use.

Damn guess I cant buy an apple "function" in europe any more. Sucks cause that was my favorite ios device lol- please explain the last bullet. Apple deserves this. A few billion here or there wont kill a company with more cash stashed away than the US government. Id bet anything they store away those billions of dollars of cash just for things like this. Eventually apple will give up on this and settle for a couple billion and keep selling in europe. Apple will continue to be a hard *** against samsung and sue them and HTC until they get more license dollars than microsoft gets from HTC and force them to raise prices and make cheaper phones, hurting the consumer and making the iphone that much more appealing.
If anything good comes out of all this its that HTC and Samsung might just become more interested in the newly opened source webos and make some real hardware with that sexy UI (:

Also if someone gets a patent on some small essential crap then that reduces competition. Good for Apple for still releasing products.
Companies stealing non-essential crap is whole definition of restricting innovation. This is the area where companies should innovate and protect their ideas.
Big difference between essential and non-essential. So yeah. Cool.

Banned in Germany huh? Well it makes sense. Germany has a history of making "smart" decisions.

That is unless you can somehow show that Apple did not infringe on the patent mentioned (even when Apple admit using it), then you are in the wrong profession you should work in the law team for Apple.
I love this thread just because what is good for the goose is good for the gander, Apple finally got what's coming to them.

Yeah because in 1933/34 Germany made a waaaay better decision then someone like me would of made. First off, never try to assume who a person is making a statement, you do not know me nor what my actual profession is. All you end up doing is showing how much of a fu*king idiot you are. I could careless about infringements, and who did what. So learn to take a joke and laugh at it, INSTEAD of becoming the joke and people laughing at you.
