Biggest Troll Bait ever: Apple adding devices to infringed list
So we all know Apple has added a few devices to their "infringed list" and suddenly, the whole community goes crazy.
Calm down, please. It's not as bad as you think.
Basically, when the lawsuit began, Samsung didn't know if it was going to win or lose. The infringed concepts that Apple was suing for was introduced in the SIII and other devices that were released after the lawsuit began. Thus, when Apple won the lawsuit, all the infringed devices in the case needed fixing. However, devices released after the lawsuit infringed the same things and they needed fixing too. Thus Apple adds then to their list of infringed devices. This is not another lawsuit. It's not another legal battle. It's just an addition to the previous one.
Again, this has nothing to do with physical design. It is all software related.
One solution for Samsung would be to update all infringed devices to Jelly Bean. I view that as a win for consumers.
Do I believe that this was the right thing to do? Yes.
Do I believe Apple has every right to? Yes.
Do I believe Apple should have? I don't know. As long as there isn't any banning, and Samsung quickly updates its software, I'll be fine.
Will Apple ask for more money (sales loss damages)? Probably
Should they? Definitely not.
This addition of devices isn't as bad as most people think. But it really did bring out a swarm of people I didn't know existed on The Verge.
