After the many, many things apple has stolen from the jb devs, why don't they sue? I specifically thinking of apple new notification swipe. If apple had pioneered the status bar swipe for notifications and android ripped it off so blatantly you can be sure apple would sue them.

It all has to do with patents and licensing agreements. If a company or individal holds a patent on a particular software feature either Apple would have to pay them licence royalties or they would have grounds to get sued.

what I'd like to know is:
"why don't apple sue any jailbreak devs"
like sony vs geohot.
Is it just because Apple are nice guys?
Or because geohot did something uniquely stupid to sony, that nobody has yet done to apple?
i got my fingers crossed on this one

Jailbreakers don't hold patents on ideas
But apple likes to take there ideas and completely do them but in a screwed up way that they like that doesn't even look like the original this to get around any copyright I would guess but I don't know why
