quote: Analysis: Apple is Seeking 10,000x FRAND Rates in Patent Lawsuits
quote: The issue is that FRAND is on the verge of dying. The would-be murderer is patent litigation. Keep that $0.02 USD patent licensing figure in mind. Now imagine you patent a trivial user interface gesture, which is essentially some sort of variant on drag and drop. Suddenly you can ban a competitor's device which retails for $200.00 USD.
quote: That's right -- based on recent court decisions, almost trivial non-FRAND patents  are being rewarded with rulings worth 10,000x or more the cost of traditional licensing fees.
quote: it offers a strong financial incentive to stop any FRAND related work. If your competitors go non-FRAND and your company works cooperatively under FRAND guidelines, your firm will almost certainly be dealt a series of crippling court rulings under the current patent atmosphere. Try explaining that to investors.
quote: That's just the first paragraph - honestly this is the worst and most biased article ever, even for you - and believe me that is saying a lot.
quote: Clue is in my account name
quote: very bright people who either lack knowledge or common sense, in some scenarios both.
quote: my personal opinion of Apple is not relevant
quote: In fact, scratch that. There's clearly only room for one rational poster here, and that position is occupied. I'm out!
quote: The anti-apple sentiment constantly being written here and the comments section is garbage. And the fact that legitimate, differing opinions are rated down to oblivion illustrates the ignorant group-think. Variety is king. When every single article about apple is negative, no matter the situation, it kills the legitimacy.
