i'm so sick of these patent lawsuits....
That's huge, if they have indeed received such a patent. It seems a bit vague though.
1. Get patent.
How does a company recieve a patent for a product that's been around for a few years already in use by many other manufacturers?
damn, what a bunch douches.
that said, i hate flippers. prefers me the soapbar design.
It sounds to me like they've had it for awhile, and just sat on it, knowing full well other cellphone companies would infringe on it.
Shitty and underhanded, but also smart.
The Law is a farce.
*Goes get patent on a mouse that clicks*
The article says the company recieved the patent today, though...
My understanding is that they'd have to prove they were the first ones to do it.
Oops, missed that part.
I have no idea how that could even work.
Our patent laws and the process for receiving patents need to be scrapped and redesigned from scratch.
So they've only just got the patent, and this gives them the right to sue everyone who's been using the tech for years? How the hell does THAT work? And more to the point, how the hell do I get the patent for a WIMP operating system?
OK, so in an attempt to make my own bucket of money, I'll slip in a patent for putting a speaker anywhere on a phone for the usage to playing music.
FP, I know you're trying to make Jux look like Dr. Teeth, but you instead succeeded in making him look a bit like Boy George.
Anywho, this is huge for these people. Sucks for those of us that may want to buy a verizon phone with this feature in the future if the price is going up.
I have dibs on the bottom left corner of the phone.
Nope you see the time stamp, I have the whole phone. And now in the same spirit as the previous lawsuit, I'm going to sue you for thinking about putting a speaker on a phone.
Who would have thought it would be so easy?
I read this, scrolled up and lmfao. Now my co-workers think I am retarded.
What was this thread about again?
Oh yes, the phone thing. That is pretty crazy. Won't affect my phone buying habits. I still have the same crappy Kyocera Energi with the battery door taped on. Had it for years.
Quick! Someone patent a cel phone that makes phone calls!!
No, THIS is.
Boy Jux. Or maybe Jux George?
Anyways...phones already have a speaker on them, how can you patent it?
