That's all true, but I think the fault lies with the broken system and those who don't change the broken thing.

If the system forced you to aggressively defend your IP as it does in the case of trademarks then I would agree.

Since it doesn't, I'd say blame both the system and the abuser.

And Apple is one of those that want to keep it as is.
