Those patent issue should only be made available only in the USA not outside USA. I wonder who invented RECTANGLE screen. Apple product screen should be shaped like an apple, but who is going to buy it? So let's go back to who invented rectangle screen? The first inventor should be paid royalty. Think think think.

The courts are just as guilty as Apple for allowing this farce to continue. If Appple were sent off with a flea in their ear they would not keep trying the competition srifling initatives.

Apple is just like Facebook Mark Zuckerberg (all typical American). Steal the ideas & trademark/patent it before anyone else does.

"bounce animation", only an evil company like Apple would "patent" simple "bounce animation" or "the rectangular shape", and only Apple would be so evil that they "patent" the ability to press a phone-number in a text and that open the phone-application! Apple are trying to make the world a worse place to live in!
