quote: Software patents need to be outlawed and Samsung needs to respect the FRAND rules.
quote: They tried to negotiate with Apple for a fair and equitable licensing agreement, as stipulated by FRAND rules
quote: Apple then decided to refuse negotiating, and just steal the use of Samsung's FRAND technology anyway
quote: Now please show me which "FRAND rules" say that you can just indefinitely use FRAND patented technology without ever paying anyone ONE red cent?
quote: Samsung claims they did, Apple claims they did not.
quote: Should Apple now halt production of all of their devices, because Samsung made an unreasonable offer - or pay way over the odds for a FRAND patent?
quote: Apple's reputation in such areas is to the point that nobody would believe their side of the story except the most fervent fanboi. Like you.
quote: It's not up to Apple to decide "oh well, I don't like the way this is going, I'll just use the technology anyway and pay zero."
quote: Apple has gone years, literally years, without paying one red cent for the technology that Samsung spent billions in R&D to develop. And you're sitting here talking about "FRAND abuse"?
quote: I'm sure from Samsung's point of view, their offer was perfectly reasonable. From Apple's point of view, "reasonable" clearly means "free".
quote: What's certain is that Apple will not be under investigation for any kind of FRAND abuse.
quote: That doesn't give Samsung the right to seek complete bans of the products
quote: It's hard to get in trouble for FRAND patents when you never actually develop any technologies ever.
quote: AHAHA if this isn't the pot calling the kettle man. As if Apple seeking bans for using rectangles is any more legitimate.
