    Apple's Karma seems to be feeling great since they're filing another "Everyone is copying us" suit.... So, now Apple will put a family owned cafe out of business in Germany, since the German courts have already proven to be Apple followers..

    Hope this will be an iOpener for some.
    Now who wants to start a company with a logo in the form of a pear with a bite out of it? Of course, not a software company.... just a plantation. ;)

    I'm quite certain they have an entire team which does that, their sole job is to search for anything they can sue or try to scare into a settlement. In the case of Android, their goal is not directly money, their goal is to prevent competition and in turn make profit in the future, they don't care if they lose money in the short term in law suits... the side effect of any Apple success like that is of course that they slow down technological advance.

    I will be glad when apple just fails and dies. (preferably by losing a major lawsuit. That would be justice.)

    Man, people are acting like this is something different that a multi-million(Maybe billion?) company is doing!

    People are only reacting like this because it's Apple. This is business, any business as big as Apple would be willing to sue someone for something like this.

    (That being said, I hate the way a lot of big businesses act to get what they want. Apple though, I cannot lie I'm not a fan of some of the routes they go to get what they want.)

    BS. People are reacting like this, because what is being done is _WRONG_, and even worse: Some people still expects better from Apple.

    Not all large corporations behave like that, and they still make money. However, it seems that most businesses that earns money from the entertainment-industry behaves like that, and keep on purchasing laws to CONTINUE their onslaught of small-businesses and flesh-and-blood persons (as opposed to "legal entities"). Apple are among the absolutely worst, right along with the Disney corporation (who're responsible for the life+70year copyright).

    May all their executives go broke!

    They're still selling a 10 year old retardified version of FreeBSD, calling it the most advanced operating system in the world and charging for updates... yet they still manage to sell a lot and do well. That right there should be a sign that they're not going anywhere.

    Imagine if Microsoft was selling a crippled version of a Unix or Linux distro from 10 years ago and charging for service packs that they gradually released throughout that time...

    Not to mention malware authors are starting to actively target MacOSX these days, and Apple decided to put some sort of an application black list in recent updates.
    I guess even the most secure OS still needs a stone & rock version of antivirus to protect itself.

    The actions of Apple at the moment remind me of another company that was sue happy. Anyone recall Rambus?
    The only people remotely in agreement with Apple at the moment are Apple fanboiz who are putting up a Squinty Eyed Toothy Smile along with a Dont Care attitude.
    I was never an Apple fan but did appreciate the Hutzpah of S. Jobs. Now that he is gone forever, I couldnt care less about Apple trademarks or their openly brazen attitude about competition.
