Sure blame Apple for protecting their property

Protecting your property is fine.
Trying to stifle innovation isn't.

What "innovation" is involved when you are infringing upon the IP of another company! Protecting your IP does the exact opposite of "stifling innovation."you are forced to either pay for doing something a certain way, or you find another way to do it. If it was not protected and it was a good method, companies would just use it for free and skip figuring out a better way to do it.

You say this as if Samsung isnt already making new products despite these bans and injunctions, its just that Apple keeps a tent in the courtroom and a sleeping bag on deck for every release date that Samsung or other major competition has, how much longer can we look at the news board and see that once again Apple has claimed that someone has stolen their patent (lets not forget they steal patents too) and then those products get banned, then those products are unbanned and the circle of death continues

@Hemlocke: Xerox, the "inspriation" for the original macintosh. LG Prada, various Sony designs, and other generic designs: "inspriation" for iphone. Dieter Rams' designs for Braun: "inspriation" for pretty much everything coming out of apple since jobs' return which continues until now. Mitsubishi and others: "inspiration" for multitouch. Rio & other MP3 players: "inspiration" for ipod. Windows tablets and other tablet designs, as well as the concept of a thin interactive device (like a clipboard or writing pad): "inspiration" for ipad. Apple hasn't come up with anything actually new or innovative in years, if ever. Stop fooling yourself. You're a poison, as is your name.

Some dogs always bark but never bite... The same way Apple's only gonna throw law suits at everyone instead of innovating good products... We are all here for better innovation technology for our tomorrow... Stopping it is like eating pure Bull$h!t...

Do whatever you want to do Apple, King will always be the King.
And you know what, Don't even think that you can come even near to the technology what Samsung and Google has.

What are the devices in question? Are the the ones from the trial and if so who cares? It's not like any of them are new.

Feb is too long away ... 4 months is a big time in Android world :)
Apple can keep doing this and get nothing out of it except more sales for Samsung ...

What I don't understand is why Samsung are getting a beating only in American courts yet those same law suits go very differently in Asia and Europe?????

Jingoism prevails over principle of natural justice. Nothing uncomon. What needs to be seen is how many politicians hold huge stocks of Apple ... :)

Bias and those countries don't believe in fair justice
17. rusticguy (Posts: 2828; Member since: 11 Aug 2012)
Yes America protects culprit of one of the worst Industrial disasters in world. Do you know who? If not go back to school :)

You just described the American trial perfectly. Throw in retard with an agenda, and you've also nailed the jury foreman.

fair justice in America? Do some research you sound ignorant...

It's because Apple's patents are so broad that it's really just a matter of opinion if someone is infringing or not.

"Home field advantage", even though apple doesn't pay taxes in the US nor does it have any manufacturing jobs here. Samsung does both.

The problem within US political system is lobbying, a subtle way to bribe politicians. In the States is acceptable that large companies “donate” big amounts of money to gain political favors. I don’t know but Apple with its endless bank account (almost as big as the US federal government’s) may do wonders. For the record, I’m not accusing anyone, Apple could sue me and they really excel at that.

Please Samsung, make Apple remove LTE from their products... This patent has nothing to do with FRAND, the iphone5 will run perfectly on 3G networks... Please don't let them off the hook on this one... Thank You in Advance.

Oh yeah, I had forgotten about that lawsuit. Disappointed there hasn't been anything more on it

Who cares. Its not as if this is gonna boost Apple sales. As time passes, Apple's new devices are getting lamer and lamer.

Why is it only U.S. courts that side with Apple just shameful.
