    Apple was able to stop Samsung from selling the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in europe, cause of a design patent
    which included "4 Round corners, Flat surface, thin"

    But now look at this, this was before even a iPhone was shown to public, from 2006.

    its a Digital Picture Frame, and holy s**t.. it looks like a iPad 1 o_O from the year 2006.

    Yes, this is kind of like one car company whingeing (exactly what Apple does) about another car company producing a car with 4 wheels, an engine, and able to carry passengers.

    lawl fair point - it's like when Bethesda (Creators of The Elder Scrolls V) sued Mojang for using the word "Scrolls" as a title for their new game. I mean, come on!

    That's different, completely different. One is about a name people can argue about that, since establishing brand name power takes ages. However Apple are throwing a hissy fit because there is competition that will kick their arse in and they don't know how to compete. That is plain wrong.

    Those responsible for creating the patent/copyright system as it is all need to be drug out into the streets and shot, because both are screwed up beyond recognition. I dare not ever try to come up with any computer device or software idea because I know somehow some big company has a broad vague patent and will just sue for all the profit. Same applies to any new type of music/video invention. Notice nobody but big companies invent anything these days? That's why.
