Samsung adds iPhone 5 to Apple patent suit

Tuesday 2 October 2012 | 12:34 CET | News
Samsung Electronics has added the iPhone 5 to the list of devices in its patent infringement suit against Apple. The original complaint was filed at a California court in April. Samsung had indicated its intention to make the amendment shortly after Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 on 12 September. A person close to Samsung told the Financial Times said that the company could not rule out pushing for a sales ban on the new iPhone, although it was not clear when its complaint would be heard in court.

The Patent Office isn't just corrupt, it's incildrbey stupid as well. They really have no idea whatsoever how computers and software work and issued patents right and left for stuff that was perhaps intellectual property or trademarkable or copyrightable (or perhaps not) as if a new form of drill press had been invented. I had a colleague from my days in the defense end of government that ended up working in the Patent Office for a number of years before retirement and she often regaled me with tales of total idiocy at the office. If it wasn't for the concept of prior art overturning patents the whole country would be paralyzed.I like my iPhone, but Apple's take on this is is idiotic. And probably leaves them open to somebody from HP or IBM or AT&T hammering them because they made a rectangular monitor a zillion years ago.
