The patent system is broken, and Apple is abusing it
The patent system is broken, and Apple is abusing it.
The Galaxy Nexus, Google’s latest flagship Android phone manufactured by Samsung, has been banned from the US due to a patent over searching for things from more than one place. Seriously, let’s look at how trivial this is.
Let’s say you’re a student leading a group project to present research on Thomas Edison. You want to find as much information as quickly as possible, so you tell one student to go to the library to look for books, one student to hop on a computer and search Google, and another to look at a local movie store. Then once they find something, they are to report back to you so you can add the information to the presentation. You have now violated Apple’s patent.
Yep. Apple patented looking for things in multiple places. Not even “ages ago,” but in this millennium. Now Google is forced to remove this simple and expected feature of their phones or let them be banned from the US.
What. The. Frak.
