My bad! Sorry Marc!

He was actually replying to that statement

phuuuullleeezzzz! get off your high horse and don't let the door hit you on your way out!

While you are at it...stay out of anything Amercian; don't even bother coming to the US while you are at it!

``

I will be boycotting Apple and American stocks. I called my broker today, we're winding down our positions in American-based companies.

This is the kind of heavy handed state intervention you expect in China or Russia.

Sorry, I thought I was investing in the US - a country that believes in the rule of law. I was mistaken. Enjoy your failure cascade.

Only an idiot would make such claims, but feel free to lose your butt investing outside of US Stocks. I won't lose any sleep.

Well, congratulations for not paying attention at which patent get Apple products banned.

For people that are incapable to read and understand:

* Samsung was asking 15$ per iPhone
* It is a standard technology and it can't be worked around
* Patent was thrown out and deemed invalid in all other countries that litigation took place
* That technology is in a chip that is made by a company that HAS a license for that patent from Samsung !!!
* It makes much less than a 0.1% of that component

Here is an explanation for you that think Samsung is right in this case.

Wow you're not very bright. Standard essential patents get chosen by a standards body and become necessary to create a class of product. Meaning, if you want to make a cell phone work on ATT, then you need to do certain things. Samsungs patent was chosen and thus they were obligated to license fair and reasonably. They are not supposed to get rich off SEPs. None of Apples patents they've used in lawsuits were standards, nor are they REQUIRED to make a product. They are either design or product differentiating. Apple has no obligation to contribute their design patents to a "common pool" nor should they, None of their design patents are necessary to create a cellphone. They're just necessary to make an iPhone clone, which Apple should fight to protect against.

Apple DOES own standard-essential patents, and they've never used them in lawsuits and they've certainly never tried to get a sales ban using any SEP.

Apple is not obligated to license their non-SEP on FRAND rate and Apple isn't suing anyone with SEP, unlike Samsung. Samsung asks >10$ per phone for a GSM/CDMA patents which CAN'T be be worked around. And >10$ per phone isn't FRAND. If you think it is, you are out of your mind.

FRAND is a way for companies to share patents among them in a so called Fair share ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FRAND ). Apple didn't want to give ANY of their patents into the common well of patents, thus had to pay more, as ditated in the FRAND agreement.

So you yourself belong to the people you mention in your last sentence.

I know for certain that you are too lazy not only to seek the truth but also to comprehend the specific SEP patent in question.

If you wish to educate yourself instead of being ignorant...go look up Fosspatents.

Unless you educate yourself with the topic, you will always remain to be a willfully ignorant troll thinking Samedung isn't a corrupt chaebol.

You obviously have no idea what is it about. The patents that Apple was banned for was SEP (standard essential patents) that you simply can't work around. Samsung wanted 2.5% of iPhone revenue (about 15$ per phone) for those patents, that is much higher than they charged others. Do you see that as fair? And there are many SEP patents, if every SEP holder would start suing with that 2.5% demand then no phone maker will make money on their phones, which obviously will make it much worse for consumer as phone makers will limit phone's capability or make prices higher.

I see a more of an issue where Google (Motorola) says that their products that infringe on non-SEP can't be banned from US market because they are assembled in US (most of components are made in China).

I see many people like you that comment when they know almost nothing about the subject.

Unbelievable favouritism from the US Government, ignoring the fact that Apple have broken the law and been sentenced by an impartial third party, and just showering protectionism all over the US company.

Next step - US citizens forced to only buy US products.
