“I’d rather settle a patent lawsuit, but I don’t want Apple to be the developer for the world, I want people to make their own stuff.”
These are the words expressed in a serious manner by Apple’s CEO Tim Cook after the earnings announcement conference call, and I guess he waited keenly for this moment. Apple Inc. is currently in litigation over patents with great names from the technological domain, namely Google/Motorola, Samsung and HTC.
The Apple products are based on years of hard work and innovation and Tim Cook only asks the other companies to stop taking the Apple inventions and to redeem for the past trespasses. But the Apple’s smartphones and tablets dominate the technological market, such as the Q2 earnings showed, and the other giants from the domain want to keep up, thus a settlement between the companies is almost chimeric.
