Apple would make the best displays in the world and make the world's first super high-density flash chips.

To NOT file these lawsuits would be negligent.

That's the legal motivation. The financial motivation (aside from the obvious potential income from wins) is that these actions interfere with the competition's ability to gain market share. Lawsuits, injunctions, etc. slow down the competition and mean more money for Apple. And yes, it is their responsibility under the law to maximize shareholder profit. That is any corporation's goal. It's not personal, it's not "petty", it's not "childish" - it's BUSINESS. Believe me, Apple is not nearly so emotionally invested in these actions as many of you seem to think.

And I agree with others...I'd rather not read about the lawsuits here on MacR....it's rather boring.

Honestly I'm sick and f*^*ing tired of this. I really don't care anymore. Apple needs to concentrate on making their products the absolute best they can be. They're good now but can be a lot better. Forget about Samsung and their alleged copying. If your product is drop dead great and awesome, it's not going to make a bit of difference what Samsung does.

It seems like whenever someone sues for patent infringement, most people here complain that it's frivolous without even knowing the specifics of the claim. If Samsung really does copy Apple, which they really have in the past (but I don't know about this case), it's a lose-lose for Apple. Either they don't sue and get copied, or they sue and enrage the anti-government people.

I'm confused about the "stylus" thing. Does this case relate to the usage of styluses (or stylos, whatever)? That would make no sense.

Ok, I do get that, but then the question is why aren't they suing Microsoft for the Slate? My wife saw a comercial for it and until they said it was a Microsoft product she thought it was the oddest commercial Apple had ever produced because she thought it was for the new iPad. And she is not a dummy when it comes to these things, if it can fool her, it could fool anyone.

Yeah it will. See Cisco v. Huawei. If nobody cared about copying, the copiers would always win.

We know why. Up until (now) Microsoft tablets or phones pose little threat to Apple. Samsung devices do. But I know you know that already...

Cheap at any price for Samsung. They shamelessly copy Apple, right down to stores and store-in-store displays, these days.

Samsung had to copy Apple or they'd be on the ropes like Nokia and RIM.

The jury was way too lenient with Samsung last time. Hope Apple is getting better at making its case. They don't seem to have a Jony Ive of lawyers on staff.

Again? Apple, just be done with it already. You already got more money than the US government plus the compensation given by Samsung in the last trial. When are you going to be done with it!?
