I am so sick of hearing who is on Apple's 900 page list of who they're going to sue next...
Mad


I will be happy when I see some of these companies giving Apple a taste of their own medicine!

Range,
Problem is, if you look you will see Kodak has become just as bad as Apple is patent suits. To be fair, if Apple or any others can't sue Kodak because of Chapter 11 protection, they shouldn't be allowed to pursue their suits against others. And please, Kodak because of their bad business model got themselves into this mess. They sat on their products while everyone else was innovating.

"Problem is, if you look you will see Kodak has become just as bad as Apple is patent suits. "

Ummmmm...Apple explicitly targeted Android for destruction, they admitted that their goal was to completely eliminate the competition and force it off the market forever. What company or product has Kodak targeted for extinction?

The fact is that for most companies patent infringement lawsuits' are just business by other means, it ain't personal, and the goal isn't destruction, the goal is simply to force the other company into negotiations.

Apple's lawsuits against Android are of a different nature. Apple didn't sue HTC, Motorola and Samsung becuase they were trying to force them to the negotiating table. They sued these companies ...

T Bone thing is, Kodak isn't only suing Apple, you would have a point in that case.

Maybe reasoning is different, but we aren't talking about Google and Android. But a failed once great and innovating company that has become a patent troll to finance their existence.

Kodak is suing everybody because they are near bankruptcy and desperate to raise cash, not because they are trying to eliminate the competition. They are trying to raise money, which is the classic reason for a lawsuit. Apple said that they don't care about money, they are going for 'principle'.

T-Bone,
I think they're in Chapter 11 already but can be wrong. I understand and basically said the same. But, I don't buy into we can sue but can't be sued no matter the reason.
