Legal "[...] tonight Apple entered into evidence in its trial with Samsung a document showing that it offered the South Korean company a licensing deal on some of its key technologies. Specifically, Apple offered to license the portfolio of patents if Samsung would pay $30 per smartphone and $40 per tablet." $30-40 per device is a lot of money for some trivial features (rounded corners, slide-to-unlock etc). No wonder Samsung declined.

? patent stand off? What patent stand off?

If you look Apple has always done this! Come to market first or better if not first then sue those who copy!

Sorry but if the CEO of the company that wasn't even in the software business at the time you are about to come out one of your most popular products ever, is on your board or directors and all of a sudden they doing the same thing, the same way as you!! There is a problem!

I would sue everyone also.

On top of that MS is doing the same thing, they just got everyone to pay them so they didn't really have to go to court like Apple.
