Legal Ah, patents - the never-ending scourge of the technology industry. Whether wielded by companies who don't actually make any products, or large corporations who abuse them because they can't compete in the market place or because they're simply jerks, they do the industry a huge disservice and are simply plain dangerous. According to The Wall Street Journal (circumvention link), president Obama is about to take several executive actions to address patent trolls - which may seem like a good idea, but I am very worried that all this will do is strengthen the positions of notorious patent system abusers such as Apple and Microsoft.

I don't know about those cases you mentioned, but if Apple sues them it's most likely those companies made rather exact copies of Apple products.

Obviously you don't otherwise you wouldn't say that they don't sue. Also rationalising the actions, that contradict your own statements... classic sign of a fanboi.
