The effort by power integration is really appreciable. I never saw many cases regarding the patent infringement have come to conclusion so fast. With the right evidence power integration is able to convince court means this should be clear and substantial evidence. In this age of internet it is really difficult for the companies to protect their intellectual property. Companies need lot of money and people to create technology and more money to fight for them. This judgment would be a delight for any such companies and to all clever people involved in developing them!!!!

Patented features? The law needs to draw a line as to what could be considered an Intellectual Property. The patent office should not hand out ownership of concepts which could be implemented independently without actually copying anyone.
