all apple fanboys gtfo Samsung is being sued quote for quote "their Phones are a square with rounded edges" Apparently apple patented the square and the U.S. accepted it. So come sue me my table is a square.
No matter how little worth of Apple's said design and utility IPs involved in the recent court case at San Jose, it is fair to say that they are not garbage. However, it is obvious that the juries involved blatantly discriminated against Samsung. In reference to the comments publicized, the jury foreman is obviously biased. My crystal ball says that Apple likely fail in most of the upcoming legal battles outside of US where protectionism and prejudice ALWAYS prevail.
A patent and legal system should aim to prevent is theft by copying, such as stealing the technology of a competitor's product, or creating such a conscious, copycat duplication that one product can be confused with another, thus letting the profits of an originator be taken by an imitator. Samsung did not do this.

oh, come on folks. we're not talking about real innovation here. apple is litigating things like rounded-off rectangles and bounce/stretch cues for when you scroll off the end. these are OBVIOUS, and should never have been given the fig leaf of a patent in the first place.
