Another day another Apple lawsuit.
Another reason I'll never buy another Apple product.
Ericsson listed iPhone as one of approved office phone. I think now they are going to forbid it.

But fanboys like you will never see that. As I said from the very first post that Apple is a bully and agressive with patents..
However you can't call it a patent troll.. Then even Nokia, nVidia, samsung, microsoft, google would be patent trolls.
There is a difference between an unethical patent bully and a patent troll which you apple haters/ some fanboys can't seem to understand..
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2015You should stop buying from Samsung too.. They went to court with Ericsson for the same matter... morebro will you stop saving apple's a** already?we know you "looove" (cr)apple and their (over)priced pieces of sh*t!remove that fake facade from your eyes and realise the reality.apple was,is and always will be a patent troll and bully *cough* crybaby who will retort to its mommy (the US courts) when someone refuses to give it what it wants.
Go away Apple, all you are good at is winning court cases, not a good look!

emart, 14 Jan 2015First I thought you're just being funny, but men what have you been crackin? Dont base all you... more"Do they make the products that the patent cover? Mostly, no."
Guess you are the one who is smoking something..
The other points you mention is done be each and every manufacturer out there.. Google for it and you will get all the cases you want..
And still Apple doesn't fit into a patent troll category..
Rockstar might be a patent troll but then it was a partnership of Sony, MS, ericsson, microsoft and apple there. Not apple alone..
Just accept the fact that you don't know what a patent troll is..
Oh, let me think. How was it, when Apple sued Samsung for breaking his patents on rounded rectangle and slide-to-unlock? Ah, here it is, a fixed payment, plus a payment based on device price by some percent. And now, when someone does the same to them, they go to the court? Oh, come on, Apple...
Maybe they produce good devices, but their policy and behavior makes them absolutely unthinkable buy. I won't support such behavior.
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2015Apple is agressive and unethical when it comes to patents.. But it is not a patent troll..
... moreFirst I thought you're just being funny, but men what have you been crackin? Dont base all your claims on wikipedia, go search further. Maybe then you'll finally realize that your beloved apple is not as perfect as you thought it is.
Do they buy the patents? Mostly, Yes. Technology? Some, yes. Do they make the products that the patent cover? Mostly, no. Are they willing to slow innovation to enforce their patents? Hell yes. Do they sue companies that cant defend themselves? YES. Do they take aggressive legal actions in hopes of preventing competition from entering the market? Yes. Do they use older patents that are nearly outdated in order to pursue patent infringement? Yes yes.
And let's not forget about the infamous Rockstar.
Nuff said. Whatever you say next is irrelevant on my part.
Is this a joke?
Apple asking for reasonable price? Do they ask a reasonable for their iPhone?

They hold the patent rights to the implementation... moreactually im a fanboy from HTC but that aside, i know apple are paying for patents, but you fanboys always claim "apple invented this, aplle invented that" no trhey did not, than you ifanboys should wright "apple paid samsung, aplle paid erricson etc for the invention form samsung from erricson etc" understand what i mean?
nemesh73, 14 Jan 2015it may well be, but the question was "what did apple invent" thats the problem you f... moreIt doesn't matter if they invent it or not.. They hold the patent rights to the implementation they did.. With present patent laws it is as simple as that..
And for whatever things they use from others they are paying the royalties..
You think Samsung is suing nVidia because they invented anything?
Problem with fanboys like you is that you see only Apple suing while all the other leading manufacturers including Samsung, Sony, Motorola, Nokia have been suing each other around since ages..

You don't know what a patent troll is.. I gave you a link to find out what a patent troll is.. But you are clearly incapable of reading.. So you need help..
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2015Can you name one thing that Apple INVENTED?They still hold the IP for their version of implementation.. Whoever might have invented the techonolgy itself.. AND they manufacture devices using that implementation..
So that makes them defending their profits not patent trolls..
If they were NOT making the iphone and their patents were bought from some other company and they sued samsung.. That would make them a patent troll..
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2015Can you name one thing that Apple INVENTED?Well they did implement the first massively successful multitouch phone. it may not have actually been the first phone with a multitouch screen, however, it is safe to say that it's paved the way for most of the phones we see today in terms of functionality.
