Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

Patents can be infringed upon and at the same time be invalid. The concept is not mutually exclusive.

If you can prove prior art, obviousness, or anything like that, you can prevail in court.

If you can't, take a license.

You have now pretty much explained the whole absurdity and uncompetitiveness of this system.

Thanks...
