Legal And just like that, within a matter of days, the jury has reached a verdict in Apple vs. Samsung. The basic gist is simple: Apple's software patents are valid, and many Samsung devices infringe upon them. Apple's iPhone 3G trade dress is valid, and Samsung's Galaxy S line infringes, but other devices did not. Samsung did not infringe Apple's iPad design patent. Apple did not infringe any of Samsung's patents. Apple is awarded a little over $1 billion in damages. Competition lost today, and developers in the United States should really start to get worried - software patents got validated big time today.

Someone should just claim that their dead relative invented the western letters. Show some bogus evidents that no one can verify. The sue every corporatio that has produced even a line of code.

Or

Mayde Edison's realatives should claim that modern led components infringes their idea of an lightbulb, because they emit visible light.

*sigh*

Maybe, if were lucky enough some alien race comes and infects human race with some deadly plague like disease and that will be end of this farse. ^^
