They just passed a patent reform where anyone can fight a patent, all they need to do is gather the previous art and make the case. Some of Apple's patents are going to get overturned, like the rectangle with rounded corners.

Crowd-sourcing can be a double-edged sword. The patent applications that manage to get through the crowd-sourcing effort would seem to be harder to defend against, making for more aggressive enforcement.
I wonder how the examiners will use the new resource? The biggest risk would seem to be in crowd-sourcing not understanding the application and delaying/complicating the application process. I imagine there will be more appeals of final rejections than before.
Interesting article. Thanks for the link.

Cant wait for the note 2 to hit the states. This will be a amazing device. Also glad to see samsung taking a proactive approach to fend off the rotten fruit company. They have caused enough headache already.

you are not allowed to use "amazing" as an adjective to describe samsung devices. Apple has already patented that, so that would be copying.

iHope JK and Our Lord Savior Eric find a way to vAnquish Apple and their iThink my cAthedrAl is my Burger KiNg PhiLosophy. iAlso hope that when they all map a Starbucks with their new mApless feature in a desperate search of an iWiFi connection so they can fAceGriMe each other and send emails, they inAdvertently wind up on a David Koresh fArm in Waco.

I think you'd actually get thumbs up if you type in a normal manner.

My guess is: because this is iPhoneArena and everything has an iBefore it.

JK is not the prophet that needs to be with Eric. It should be Peter and HT Chou who will defeat apple. They started the android game, they will progress and lead it into a better future... Nexus One

I think Samsung, Google, htc, nokia, microsoft etc need to get together to take down apple. Apple is the hitler of the mobile phone industry. They want a single phone owned by all and want to control how you use it
27. HäckeMáte (Posts: 168; Member since: 28 Feb 2012)
Right because Microsoft, Google etc TOTALLY dont want to be number one right. They just want to play nice?
