In short, this is called Karma. A company that sues another for "copying" the great "innovation" of making rectangles with rounded corners, or of using a lower case i to denote Internet application, deserves nothing better. None of these were Apple innovations. Even if the Apple fan club thinks that high tech started with, and goes no further than, their Apple iToys. If other companies behave the same way, trying to make a buck using the bully's own tactics, why should anyone cry about it? Honestly.

Here's a very specific example of what I'm talking about. You say: "Laws can be tricky in some places, created specifically to benefit the locals. This is not news for anyone, isn’t it?" What do you think it looked like to the rest of the world, when the jurors in the much-hyped Apple-Samsung lawsuit were told NOT to consider prior art, if the product was never sold in the US? Karma.

"Laws can be tricky in some places, created specifically to benefit the locals" ...whereas laws in the US are created to benefit the whole of humanity, of course...

I gave her the Benefit of the doubt that she was including the US but after reading her EBN article you are exactly correct to say that.

Your EBN article sounds like a child wrote it .."fishy cases".. are you serious? US gov and Co.s don't practice self serving protectionism? Let me guess, you wrote that article on an Apple product correct? And listen to music, talk and surf on your 3 other Apple products? You're another Delusional Apple Fan Yoyo. One thing i really like about EET and the like is relatively adult articles and little to no winy kiddy "editorial".
