I wonder how it's going to work out on the long run. Apple's getting some rotten karma, and giving some publicity to Samsung. If this goes to the Supreme Court as it may well be the case, it's going to be epic.

Quote:
The court’s ruling in 1853 of a case involving Samuel Morse’s patent for the telegraph established the tone for these wide-reaching decisions.

In the case of O’Reilly v. Morse, the Supreme Court ruled that abstract ideas weren’t subject to patents, in an opinion from Chief Justice Roger Taney.

In March 2012, the modern Supreme Court cited the 1853 decision in another patent case. In Mayo Collaborative Services v. Prometheus Laboratories, the Supreme Court rejected a patent claim for medical tests.
Quote:
“Under today’s looser standards, Morse should own the Web. Companies now seek patents for the slimmest of ideas,” writes Crovitz. “The patent explosion began in the mid-1990s, when the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ended the requirement that patents specifically define inventions. Now, business processes and algorithms are routinely patented, making it hard to innovate with products like mobile devices without running the risk of violating numerous patents.”
