The only people who can decide what is, and what is not, a valid patent, is the patent office. Both judges and juries have to abide by the law, they can't just do whatever they want....if the patent office says that 'X' is a patent then judges have to abide by that, even if (as is the case here) the patents being enforced are ridiculous and absurd.....the judge can't just declare the patent invalid unless he can find a legal way to do that....

If I can get the patent office to give me a patent on the fact that water is wet, then I can sue every bottled water company in the country for violating my patent, and there's nothing that a judge or jury can do about it because the patent office says that 'wetness' belongs to me....the patent can't be invalidated by a judge unless he can find a legal way to do it....

So Apple's strategy is to patent everything, including tons of stuff that is stupid and ridiculous...and then use the fact that judges and juries are powerless to invalidate those patents eliminate the competition....


This is the standard tactic of patent trolls....which is exactly what Apple has become...
