Because Apple is a US company, that is why. They gotta protect their own economy. Thus only Apple can sell black rectangles with rounded corners, the most ridiculous patent in the world.

Funny thing is I've been banned from posting and voting because of whatever reasons I also don't know, when I'm using my mobile to surf to this website. Maybe I crap Apple and USPTO too much on their ridiculous patents and no one wants to face it. But I'm still able to post on the PC. Oh well. :p

Coming from someone who admits they hate Samsung and slates it defending apple

Why pretend to act all neutral when your just like most of the others, you have a undeserved sense of superiority

Apple will burn under everyone's hatred.
I really wish samsung has a really good answer for all this. "we'll make our own patent office, with hookers and blackjack"

If cr@pple really wants to protect their patent (do they really have one?) they should licence like Nokia, Microsoft et cetera do and not stifle competition like they do. It should be busy competing with itself 'cos i haven't seen a real innovation from the bitten fruit since the first iphone ( that is if you don't count gimmicks). All in all, US licence office is to blame.

"Judge Thomas Pender ruled that Samsung has stepped upon Apple's patented turf regarding the design of the iPhone, its touchscreen technologies and for connecting headphones"

Ok, design patents, I can see (although it seems total BS to be able to patent a shape) but touchscreen patents and "connecting headphones" are allowed?! Somebody please tell me what kind of stuff the patent office is smoking to let this slide

Meanwhile, in a Dutch court Samsung was found to not be infringing on Apple's patents.

Patents for "the design of the iPhone, its touchscreen technologies and for connecting headphones"...all three things that Apple did not create, but since they have the paperwork, they get all the credit and can sue anyone else who uses that technology. This is an injustice of the highest caliber, and the biggest reason why I hate Apple with a passion.

There is no logic or fairness involved in the US patent system, and because of that, Apple is the most powerful force in the business world...and it's complete bull.

They got a patent for connecting a headphone? I'm pretty sure every company and product that has a 3.5mm jack uses the same technologies. I'm so sick of this patent war BS.
