    Apple is the definition of a patent troll. They throw a jillion bogus lawsuits at the wall and hope a few stick.

    And most of them are for stuff they don't own, are definitely not the first to use and they only make all these so they don't have to actually innovative. They're still then only company dumb enough to think they can own the rectangle shape in a phone's design.

    Apple is not a patent troll. A troll is something completely different.

    Different? Perhaps. Completely different? Not a chance. Apple has if anything fueled a lot of these trolls on and made it okay to sue people for things they didn't invent.

    Can you sue over patents you don't own?

    No, they're not. A patent troll is by its very definition a company that owns patents but doesn't make any products. Those trolls make all of their income from licensing.

    No. If anything, apple has slowed them down since there's more scrutiny. There were far more troll lawsuits prior to apples litigation with android manufacturers.

    That isn't what they patented at all. Their design patent for the iPhone is very, very specific. Design patents also have a whole different set of rules than utility patents.

    No. The hyperbole definitely doesn't help their arguments.

    Lot of companies do that, Apple too. I remeber they submit patent for iPhone which transparent dial cover which also have touch digitiser, never got relesed. Funniest one that stayed in my memory is Nintendo patent for Wii pellow like accesory i remeber how gaming community made fun of them.

    Normally poking fun doesn't require 100% accuracy.
