Legal "In its case against Samsung Electronics in the Netherlands, Apple is demanding an extensive ban on all Galaxy series smartphones and tablets, including a complete recall of stock by European distributors and resellers. Apple's complaint against Samsung in The Hague district court is much more comprehensive than previously thought. It's not only broader in its legal scope than a separate, ongoing Apple complaint against Samsung in Germany, but an injunction could have a 'huge impact' on the entire European market for smartphones and tablets, according to Alastair Edwards, principal analyst at Canalys." That's how far Apple is willing to go. They are willing to screw over countless resellers - some big, some small, one-shop affairs - because they don't like competition. I wonder how the Grubers of this world are going to spin this one. Hey Steve, I've got another extremely successful Android phone maker for you to sue.

Member since:

Question is, should they be sued for it?

According to Apple, they have a patent (community design or whatever) on a rectangle shape. So they should then sue every LCD makes, TV manufacturer, every car maker, every PC casing manufacturer, keyboard manufacturers, etc... oh the windows in my house are also rectangular, so they should also be put in the pot.

This is absolutely absurd!!! Apple is now (and maybe even worse) than the Microsoft from the 90's.
