And that's the real issue at this point, and one of the reasons that Apple is currently in the middle of 60% of patent litigation in the industry. Apple, IMHO, employs as many lawyers as engineers. Half of those lawyers are probably tasked with writing patents. The US Patent Office, among other agencies, have allowed far too many patents through with broad sweeping language that covers more than just the device, method, program, etc. that is meant to be protected. This is how we get to where we are now. I blame the lawyers, no matter who their employers are. They are currently abusing the system and creating turmoil. I would honestly expect these issues to conitnue until the laws governing patent submission and approval are reformed.
