The only one that comes to my mind is:

"A blind man is a king, if he has a big patent to beat anyone in the vicinity to the ground." Maybe not a poet, but I got a boat.

You could always pronounce boat so that it will rhyme with poet, then it will work. Artistic license.

This is hilarious!

If Samsung really wants people to believe it was their decision to not renew a contract, explaining how division X is now going to sell to division Y isn't the way to go about it.

So Samsung decided not to supply panels to Apple?
Exactly who is going to believe that?
Apple had already dropped Samsung as a panel supplier for the iPhone 5.

Oh, and Samsung have denied the report:

Rubber band patent being invalidated

One of the patents that Samsung was found to infringe has tentatively been invalidated.

Quote:
One of Apple's controversial mobile patents, the "rubber banding" patent, has been invalidated by the United States Patent Office, Florian Mueller of Foss Patents reports.

The "rubber banding" patent is being rejected because it lacks novelty, says Mueller. Mikey Campbell at Apple Insider adds that the patent is being rejected because there is a similar patent from AOL, and it's not clear Apple added much with its rubber banding patent.

Assuming the appeal is rejected and this patent is invalidated, it would regardless appear that AOL's prior patent for rubber-banding stands. So presumably AOL could sue Samsung if they wanted to (and Apple?), though given that they don't make phones perhaps the outcome would be uncertain.

This also has an impact on the Apple vs Google/Motorola case which was lost on infringement of rubber-banding:

Wasn't it rubber-banding that forced Samsung to change the gallery app in Touchwiz to avoid an injunction in Europe, as well?

APPLE: SCREW YOU, BRITS, everyone else says Samsung copied us

Quote:
Apple has complied with a UK court order by admitting on its website that Samsung's Galaxy Tab did not rip off the patented iPad design. High Court Judge Birss had instructed Apple to publish a statement online and in print after ruling that the South Korean electronics giant had not infringed Cupertino's patent.
Quote:
Two paragraphs acknowledge the court ruling, and four are devoted to digs at Samsung. It includes quotes from the judge saying that Samsung's fondleslab is "not as cool" as the iPad, and ends with a self-righteous declaration that courts in other countries have decided differently.
I'm not sure the judge will approve of this, would be fun if they were to be found in contempt of court...
