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".

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.

"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...

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, isnít 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.

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
