Legal Recently, the ITC ruled in favour of Samsung, issuing an exclusion order against certain Apple products, barring them from being sold in the US. Several people have called upon president Obama to step in and overrule the decision (e.g. this guy) - however, not only would this set a very bad precedent for non-US companies, it would also simply be incredibly unfair if you actually look at the ITC ruling itself. Because of this, it is quite unlikely that Obama will step in.

The thing that's broken about the patent system is that it doesn't effectively protect innovators.

The discussion of patents, however is completely broken because people represent gunuine innovation as if it were trivial.

Just because Google copied it, doesn't make the original innovation obvious.
