Judge Koh allows Apple v. Samsung II, the thriller with the manila folders

0. phoneArena 08 Mar 2013, 22:55 posted on

Despite wondering out loud if justice was best served by waiting for Samsung's appellate course over the first trial to reach its conclusion, Judge Lucy Koh agreed that the Apple v. Samsung trial set for 2014 can proceed; the issues are different this time, with much of the suit revolving around the infamous '604 Siri patent...

If Sammy wins,I wonder who will be Apple's next target, because we all know that Apple never give up. lol

Probably no one. Don't think anyother oem would display the kind of resilience as samsung did.

When both companies find out they are at the bottom of the smartphone race with Motorola, Nokia, LG, HTC, Sony, Huawei, ZTE and others, because both of them spent gobs of their cash reserve on litigation instead of Research and Development...

You can't write a single comment without mentioning your confuse love of Samsung.
I know you're one of the biggest Samsung fanboy but this is obssession, dude. You should see a psychologist, seriously.

This is why Software patents should be abolished and invalidated.

Then you will see significantly reduced technological innovation. Imagine Android stuck in Gingerbread.

I am sure software innovation would thrive without really lame patents.

Not abolished, but reviewed.

No, abolished. Like they were originally. Software is copyright protected, the coding is protected, but a concept should not be.

If we had had this madness 40 years ago, the first person to invent an operating system for a pc would have been the only one. The first word processor. The first spreadsheet program. All would have been trapped, innovation stopped, because a patent on the concept had been allowed.

There is some merit to your point. I haven't seen much litigation against other manufacturers while Apple and Sammy are dancing their dance. There has been some sniping around the edges, but the principle action is Apple vs. Sammy.

Just because we haven't seen it, doesn't mean there are no battles going on. BB and Nokia, Apple and Nokia have solved their disputes by paying Nokia the royalties. It could be the same between few others.

There have been reports of Samsung "borrowing" Nokia screen technology, most companies don't trust Samsung these days for good reason. Apple is in the best position to threaten Samsung so they do. (Had Nokia been market-leader, they would probably be suing Samsung aswel.

You don't become top dog of the industry in such a short amount of time by playing fair.
