Re: Apple now wants the Galaxy S3 and 10.1 Note banned
Apple shouldn't but the courts absolutely should as that is the only remedy. Intellectual property rights must be paramount, otherwise consumers wind up no choice or mediocre products because companies won't invest in the R&D if they know it will just get knocked off the next day and will lack the revenues to pay back their investment.
That isn't to say that vague idea's should be patentable but merely that customer's won't have a choice if no one spends billions, takes the risks and makes the stuff in the first place.
What needs to happen is the verdict set aside and a new trial where the jury gets to actually see all of the evidence including the prior art evidence. THEN with all of the evidence if they say Sammy copied, Sammy is busted, if they don't, they don't but at least you know it was a FAIR trial.
