Samsung Gets Help in the Patent Dispute with Apple

About the patent war between Samsung and Apple is in fact already much, if not everything has been said. Time wins the one, sometimes the other. But how things are developing now is really interesting, and we do not want to deprive you of any way.

Questionable Decision?

According to eningBo, Samsung is now supported by various giants like Google, HP and Facebook, who want to protest against the latest decision of a court. This had decided that Samsung should pay a total of 548 million US dollars to Apple. We remember that the patent dispute between Apple and Samsung goes back to 2011. Apple accused Samsung of having infringed the patent right several times and “stolen” Apple. The accusation was based on various features Apple called its own.

Now the big companies from Silicon Valley are behind Samsung. The decision against Samsung has a drastic impact on other companies that invest in R & D (research and development).

Should this decision be final, it will only lead to absurd consequences and shake firms down to the ground. This includes Facebook, Google, HP and the rest of the supporters. They spend billions of US dollars annually on research and development to create complex technologies and their components.

The companies argue that a function that comes out of a few lines of code is simply invented because it suggests the permanent use of a device. To patent such a function or part-function to make a profit as soon as it is in use is an absurdity. For, if it is not decisive for the user experience, the pure profit by means of foreign usage is obvious. Samsung’s co-workers have now urgently asked the court to reconsider the decision in a hearing.

Do you think Samsung, Facebook and Google can get their way through Apple? Is it at all necessary to go against the decision? We are looking forward to your opinions.
