The Seeds Of Apple’s Fall



Apple has gone beyond the bounds of protecting its valid intellectual property. It has become a bully.

The near EU-wide injunction against Samsung isn’t based on software patents at all. It’s based on a flimsy claim that the Galaxy Tab 10.1’s hardware vaguely resembles an iPad! See this post.

If Apple has a case, then so does Lodsys against everyone violating the patents it owns.

But beyond that, all of you better wonder how eagerly Apple will cooperate with authorities with wholesale dragnet handovers of private information instead of demanding the authorities justify each case.

Apple has stepped into a whole new world after the UK riots.

And I don’t think it’s prepared for that at all.

Veteran company RIM isn’t.
