    The verdict in the Apple vs. Samsung case may mean that over a billion dollars will be headed Apples way out of Samsung's pocket, it was also a moral victory, at least to Tim Cook.

    This is a classic victory for patent trolls. I have to dislike patent trolls.

    Sun Microsystem devised a new UI around when it was still sun and Mr Jobs was around. So Mr Jobs called Schwartz telling him to stop else he will be sued. On which Schwartz told Steve that if he wants to play the patent game with Sun microsystem, he will sue the ?#@*&%!^$~ out of Apple. Given the number of patents sun microsystem has, they can destroy entire Mac ecosystem. Patent trolling is classic case of trying to win lost battles, Samsung is a genuine threat to iphone markets, so apple is going after them otherwise, if it was matter of any principles then some of these patents are complete utterly bogus. Anyway, I think software patents are stupid, they should not be allowed(they are not allowed in europe). These patent battles are basically ransoming courts and law bodies in whoring for profit.
