Re: Those Who Live By The Sword...

said by jseymour:

Meanwhile, Motorola Mobility is suing Apple for real patent infringement: Google’s Motorola Files New Patent Case Against Apple, rather than "round corners on things" and patents that should be invalid due to prior art or failing the obviousness test.

Next Apple will be suing the entire lumber industry for having rectangular-shaped blocks with 'eased' (rounded) corners on them ie. 2x4's, instead of having sharp square edges on them.

The entire staircase railing industry will follow as Apple's target.......

If devices were forced to not have rounded edges via the flawed decision in this case, the FTC and consumer protection laws of some sort would probably force the manufacturers to round the edges for consumer safety.
