Legal This is probably not entirely surprising. The European Commission has announced that it is investigating both Apple and Samsung because they may have breached antitrust rules with regard to patents used as standard in the mobile phone industry - otherwise known as FRAND patents. While the EC states it's investigating both Samsung and Apple, it's likely the investigation focusses on Samsung.

In the current state we are better off without any form of software patent till something acceptable is on the table.

And being afraid to throw away a dead baby with the infected bathwater will only lead to more contamination.
(The dead baby is the software patent, infected water is the current system)
