Legal Well, the first of the big patent litigations is over. Since this one involves Apple, the big winner is obviously the highly innovative company from Cupertiono, right? The company from which all others copy, right? Well, no, not exactly. The big winner is Nokia.

Anybody who considers themselves a professional software developer will tell you that software is designed also.

You are confusing the design of something with the copying of bits. The patent protects the design, copyright protects the bits.

But maybe your dogmatic view is too basic to understand the distinction.
