I don't agree with that. But software patents should be done away with. Copyright is all the protection they need.

Can you imagine if we had allowed software patents 40 years ago, and there was s company like Apple to take advantage of it?

There'd be no choice in OS, because the first company to come up with one would have a patent for, " a collection of software that manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for computer programs."

Actually, you don't have to imagine it, just look at Apple back then. After stealing the idea of the GUI from Xerox Parc, they tried to patent it and sue anyone else who incorporated it. Fortunately, we had saner patent laws then.

That any juror should be allowed to direc thte others claiming superior knowledge is ridiculous. If the jury didn't feel they had enough knowledge they should have called in an expert to assist them. Not some amateur juror.

Verdict - Mistrial

I think Shamshung desperately need another 1-2 bln. spanking. That'll teach them not to copy. By the way Google are the ones to pay these fines actually. Because they are the ones who encourage asian manufacturers to steal and then hide away.

Then Apple needs a $100 billion spanking, because they've built an entire empire from stolen ideas. From the Xerox Parc gui, to the Neonode swipe to unlock, to the Android notification shade, to the kids developer who came up with a wireless sync app, which Apple rejected because wireless sync is a security risk, only to incorporate it in their next version of iOS without even the decency to change the icon.

Shouldn't he have been removed from the case? Whether or not he had mischievous intentions, having any sort of relation with either Apple or Samsung (in this case) should be enough to remove him. ........
This case just keeps getting filthier.
