Taco Cowboy writes: So we have Apple using a clock design without permission — http://apple.slashdot.org/story/12/09/23/1651204/swiss-railway-apples-using-its-clock-design-without-permission

And we have Apple suing others for their "rectangle with rounded corners" design

Well ... take a good look at the following -

How can Apple's designs belonged to Apple when it is proven that they stole the designs from others?

Android

Submission + - HTC has no intention to settle with Apple (njuice.com)

Taco Cowboy writes: The recent lost by Samsung in a court battle against Apple apparently does not put a dent to other parties determination to fight Apple, inside and outside of the court system

HTC's Chairperson, Ms. Cher Wang, has publicly re-iterated her belief that the $1 billion jury verdict against Samsung in the U.S. "does not mean the failure of the entire Google Android ecosystem."

Facebook

Submission + - "Facebook" vs "Faceporn" (cnet.com)

Taco Cowboy writes: It does sound like a stale joke, but reality sometimes does spring a surprise, or two

The Facebook that most (if not all) of us have heard of, by now, filed suit against a Norwegian site, "Faceporn", alleging that the latter has infringed upon its good name

A California judge presiding over the case, however, has decided that Facebook has no case

Just can't stop but wondering if I will get sued by Facebook if I start a "Buttbook" site ?
