Apples legal action was thrown out of court in the UK

Not surprising Apple lost their case in South Korea, Samsung's home turf. Oh, wait they both lost there.

If you followed the evidence presented in the US, Apple had a strong infringement claim and the jury also thought so. Why you don't is likely due to your not reading the case closely.

If you had spent millions on R&D to bring a revolutionary product to market, I suspect you wouldn't feel that this is just good business by the competition. If you review the court documents objectively, you would see that this was clearly improper action by Samsung. Just take a moment to acquaint your self with the evidence in this case.

All that aside, the patent system is a mess. Yet it is what it is and laws are laws. We are a nation of laws and lawyers. Cheating and stealing is not a virtue that is highly regarded except in politics. LOL

Only in the USA could such nonsense exist in these patents. It's well known to be open to abuse and ridiculous patents for gestures (frankly barmy and beyond logic) are accepted by the USA's silly patent system.

UK courts are far from perfect but at least they could see through the cash mad Apple nonsense that plagues us at the moment.

Apple won't be happy unless no other maker is allowed to offer tablet pc's or phones.

I wish they would wake up and smell the coffee quite litigation and just do their own thing.
