USPTO must do the same

They not only sued over slide to unlock, they claimed in court that a tap is really just a zero length slide, so any lockscreen that has a tap to open violates slide to unlock.

If it was your company you wouldnt make such comments. You obviously lack experience. Good luck owning a company.
