Legal So, after a bunch of attacks from Apple, Samsung seems to have gone on the offensive against the gadget maker from Cupertino - and big time, too. In three countries, France, Australia, and South Korea, Samsung has filed patent infringement lawsuits against Apple - with the South Korea suit being the weird one. Unlike Apple's software patents and napkin scribbles community designs, Samsung is using actual hardware patents.

In a former life I (and Albert Einstein) worked as a patent examiner. I find it incredulous that Apple could have ever been awarded protection for those "napkin scribbles". So goof for Samsung to fight back! Perhaps Governments could have a good look at their intellectual property laws and remove some of the stupidity that seems to have crept in over the years. And while they are at it remove gene patents.

Regards,
Peter
