That's only one of the patents. If those things were not necessary for the Galaxy to sell, they wouldn't been stolen in the first place. Point is, Samsung had strategy meetings to copy the iPhone, and did so by infringing on their patents.


So simply change it to "make a swirly to zoom" (I won't charge for the idea!) through a software upgrade and that ends the lawsuit?

Or will they sue over that or anything else samsung might come up with as well.

Using your example, they can create better motors and fridges (assuming the original patents on them expired) but they can't just steal the apple door handle and put it on their fridges, because they are patented.

The point is that Samsung fridges wouldn't sell if they didn't have apple door handles, and they know it, which is why they stole it in the first place and had strategy meetings about copying apples design.


No, the point is you can't open a fridge without a handle. Apple shouldn't be allowed to patent a handle any more than they should be allowed to patent an apple (which gives me an idea for some pretty good Samsung ads featuring a rotten one.)
