    Why have patents if you're not going to enforce them?

    By the time these cases are settled, it's either a financial settlement or no fault. And when it's over the technology that they were suing over isn't even used anymore. Gotta love it.

    For anyone crying about Apple being a bully or this or that, take a look at this

    Kodak and Nokia are suing many times more people then Apple (even RIM is suing 2 companies themselves), yet Apple is the one being highly demonized?

    I swear some people just look for things Apple does to hate on them and ignore everyone else's faults.

    For a company not known for respecting other's IP rights.... Apple brought out the iPhone when the trademark was owned by Cisco. Similar issues with the recent iPad roll out. Steve evidentially looks at the cash in his bank account and thinks no need to worry about what others have - I can outspend them in litigation. Great strategy if you can afford it.

    A called Smartphone Technologies is suing AT&T, LG, Motorola, Research In Motion, Samsung, Sanyo, and Apple over violations of a patent called “Personal Communications Internetworking.”

    Now please, someone explain, with enough specificity that a company wouldn't possibly infringe on the patent, what the **** a "Personal Communications Internetworking" is?

    How the heck can you avoid infringing one of the millions of patents out there if the USPTO (patent office) lets people patent these ambiguous items with little to no explanation of EXACTLY what is being patented?

    I blame the system for letting these totally ambiguous patents go through in the first place to the point that no one really knows what they mean, and certainly cant avoid infringing on them if they cant interpret them!

    And as much as people claim Apple doesnt respect other's IP rights, others out there dont respect there's either. How many OS feature copies are in other OSs right after the iphone came out that were never there for the public? If you dont see the stark resemblances in the OSs then you need thicker glasses. No one respects anyone else's IP these days, to put Apple in the forefront is clear bias against Apple.
