Legal "After weeks of witnesses, prototypes, and one last failed settlement talk, it came down to this: Apple and Samsung's closing arguments in what is very likely the tech trial of the century. The day saw both sides landing heavy blows before sending the case off to the jury - where anything can happen." The jury has to contend with 109 (!) pages of instructions and a verdict form consisting of whopping 22 pages with over 700 (!) verdicts to make - and they have to be unanimous. This is beyond ridiculous, bordering on the clinically insane. With several options for appeal still open, there is nothing to be gained from this. It's a circus.

Uhm, you forget to mention Apple violated their settlement agreements several times in that case.

Selective perception is a b*tch.

But Thom - don't you hate this sort of thing, patents and copyrights blocking innovation, shouldn't you be here backing Apple's actions against the Beatles Apple Corp?

Oh - I forgot - your principles are flexible.

All companies are equal but some are more equal than others.
