After dismissing Apple's patent lawsuit, Tokyo court now snubs Samsung too
0. phoneArena 22 Oct 2012, 05:32 posted on
The court said that Apple's way to download apps is different than what Samsung has patented, and that the airplane mode is just "an extension of past innovations". Perhaps the decision should serve as a lesson of judicial responsibility, unlike the home turf trials in the US and South Korea, where everyone ruled for their native teams, and we are waiting the appeals now...

Leave it to a country that doesnt make either the iS*ck or Samsung to actually shed some light on how stupid the whole patent wars really are. I wish the American company(Apple inc.) would take note and pull their heads out of their a**es!

If they make a phone that shoots bullets then I am in trouble because there are too many people that id love to shoot in a non lethal spot but i dont because I dont have a gun haha!

Or they can patent guns that can make calls. Let's hope that they remember that the trigger is NOT the answer button.

All patent suits (irrespective of parties involved) should be thrown out into garbage can If the complainant loses (like in this case both lost) then they should be made to pay heavy fines to court for wasting time.

Give those companies taste of Indian courts.... with lawsuits lasting for years the companies would never dare to file any lawsuit again.

That's why Tim Cook said ... India is a difficult territory. In India Patents can be annulled in Public Interest as per law here ... and certain things never get a patent here :)

An expectable result. Either samsung wins or both of them loses. Apple has no grounds here. let this serve as a lesson to timmy boy.

Looks like they get it in that court system over there, "an extension of past innovations" yeah that's what everyone needs to remember all phones today aren't designed from scratch these companies need to get back at making phones and providing apps with security and proper functioning
