Patent Wars

The smartphone and tablet patent wars between Apple and Samsung are continuing with Google being dragged in. They are returning to court in April/2014 with Apple suing Samsung for $2B. Samsung is counter-suing for patent infrigement as well. The previous court battle in 2012 ended with Samsung being ordered to pay damages to Apple in the amount of $930M.

It is becoming increasingly clear to me that the U.S. Patent System is seriously broken when it comes to technology patents especially related to software. Patents have become a game for litigation and have little to do with the protection of innovation and invention.

If your traffic isnít growing month after month, does it mean youíre doing something wrong? Most likely you arenít doing enough things right. Again, making mistakes is not the issue. Missing opportunities is. - Steve Pavlina
