Apple tells Samsung what not to do

Posted on: December 6, 2011


Read for a hilarious post on what Apple has asked Samsung not to do to avoid violations. http://www.pcworld.com/article/245493/apple_to_samsung_dont_make_thin_or_rectangular_tablets_or_smartphones.html.
It is clearly an abuse of patents. Apple cannot mandate that nobody else should be able to make flat, rectangular, thin tablets or smart phones.
Apple probably has genuine grievance against Samsung for certain violations, but the above requests are in complete violation of the spirit of patent’s law.
The patent’s office should also give a lot of thought before granting a patent to the technical companies.
Applying of very generic patents covering everything seems to be the trend of all companies so that they can sue others at the drop of a hat.
