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.

I have no idea what world some of you live in. All of your jobs are protected by some method or means. If I were a creator of any sort of media or design or play or art or any such creation, I'd expect to be protected. Every civilized country understands that the world needs to protect owners.

The lack of control is not freedom it is theft and crime and chaos.
