Today is a day of celebration my friends, for a victory has been won against the iOverlords. Apple, who has been vehemently calling Samsung a “copycat” for years now is finally being told to shut up once and for all. The Cupertino company, who thinks that they have a patent on rectangles with round edges, was denied having a court ruling overturned. Said court ruling forces Apple to publicly apologize to Samsung on it’s EU websites as well as select British newspapers and magazines for a whole month. Said apology has to be no smaller than a 14 font size and must be in a Helvetica font.
While the war with Apple has not yet been one, this is a significant victory for the technology industry. Apple is not the sole owner of the idea of the tablet PC, neither are they the sole patent owners of rectangles with squares or smart phones, or what have you. They have no write to infringe on a person or company’s creative rights or try to stifle said creativity with their outlandish claims and lawsuits.
