Tell me, does this menu screen for the Galaxy S1 look similar to the IPhone? Yes?


EXACTLY!!

Google search bar is rectangular, which is similar to Yahoo.

By your logic, literally every website with a search bar that is rectangular should sue each other.

You can't patent a rectangle, but you can patent a curved rectangle with 16 movable squares and 4 stationary squares underneath with they exact same functions (phone, internet, texting).

Let me put it this way, if you're studying to become a lawyer. There's good money in it for you no matter what, even if you loose a case someone has to pay you. And Apple pays GOOD for its lawyers.

If you're not studying to become a lawyer, then you should realize that these companies are being overtly competitive. Instead of suing for design they should be focusing on dropping the price, like gas station companies do. Most gas stations look alike? No problem, but my gas is 10 cents cheaper.

Who gives a **** if it's similar? If it was the exact same people would just go for the cheaper or better quality one. I don't think Apple should even give a damn because if their phone is better then it will sell better. I personally am just going to stick with my Nokia so I'll never have to tell a story of how I broke my smart phone when I dropped it on my pillow.

Line-item explanation of why you shouldn't buy an Apple product.

Apple Inc. is now worth $623 billion dollars. Do they REALLY need to sue Samsung for 1 billion for a phone that is only marginally similar?

Actually, the only reason they are doing it is to reduce the competition - Samsung is the largest Android-based phone manufacturer.
User avatar #94 to #89 - enkmaster (08/29/2012) [-]
Yes, they do. Apple is a very specialized company. They need to make their product and brand name seem unique and special, and keep the market undiluted and competition for their niche low. Most of their profits come from the iPhone remember, and they cant afford a drop in popularity. A severe drop could cripple the company almost overnight.

Is it moral that they do this? Thats opinion based? Do they have the right to sue over this? Damn right they do, because the american patent system is flawed and allows this kind of thing.

Hate the game, not the player.
User avatar #193 to #94 - theaceofthespade (08/29/2012) [-]
That doesn't mean they *need* to. If those other products directly copied theirs, then sure - but their brand is more than that. Specifically, it's overpriced, pretty well made, and form over function. And this doesn't eliminate competitors, it just slightly set them back while endangering their own image. Plus, as they're finding out, they have opened a can of worms since their own products also use a bunch of past patents.
User avatar #199 to #193 - enkmaster (08/29/2012) [-]
Well, they kind of do need to. They need to continue to dominate the market.

If the iPhone takes serious hits, then they dont have a hell of alot of other products to fall back on other than Macs, which make up a small part of their overall profit compared to the iphone. Samsung, on the other hand, has dozens of other smartphones, as well as a ******* of other products.

For apple, its Dominate or fall.

But it's not like they're really eliminating anything. If they were wiping out a company that would be one thing - but at the end of the day, they're just sort of strongly inconveniencing them

This is IBM simon. First touchscreen smartphone.
Its rectangular, black, it has only one button under the screen, and it has some basic PDA abilities.
It was made in 1993.
so **** apple, they didn't invent anything, they just adapted, and now they are suing others saying "hey you can't use that, we stole it first!"

On a more realistic scale: Apple did copy the LG Prada 850 (google it, phone is 6 months older than the first iPhone and looks exactly the same).

My house mate was telling me about that court case earlier today. My question is though, how can you make a device to compete with the Iphone that will not in some way resemble it? I mean all it is really is a rectangular touch-screen. What were they supposed to do, make it round?

A while back Harley Davidson Cycles tried to patent the sound from their exhaust because other motorcycle companies were copying the sound. The case was dismissed. Why did this case get a second glance from any judge worth his salt?

i like some apple products (iphone, ipod) but even i think that **** was ridiculous. $1 billion for making your phone a normal shape? was samsung supposed to make their phones triangular??

didnt they also steal some software or **** ?
User avatar #241 to #210 - roninpenguin (08/29/2012) [-]
No, it is pretty much just form factor. For example one of the things that Apple is sueing over is the ratio of Bezel size to screen. Another is 3D looking icons with round corners. It is all ridiculous in my opinion.
User avatar #263 to #241 - nachoiscool (08/31/2012) [-]
wow they got 2 billion for **** like that!?
User avatar #264 to #263 - roninpenguin (09/01/2012) [-]
Yeah, but most legal experts are saying that if it doesn't get overturned the amount is going to drop drastically because the jurors didn't follow the instructions properly.

Apple got GUI from a xerox computer, and said "great artist steal"
Microsoft took the thought of it and made it.
Apple sued them for stealing it.
Conclusion: Apple is a hypocrite.
