The Australian radio-astronomer John O'Sullivan developed a key patent used in Wi-Fi as a by-product in a CSIRO research project, "a failed experiment to detect exploding mini black holes the size of an atomic particle".
So a researcher at CSIRO developed some patentable technology during a research project, patented it, and then enforced their own patent?
That's how patents are meant to work.
Hydrogen is a terrible energy storage medium compared to modern battery technology. The only possible advantages it has are (a) you can generate it from fossil fuels, and (b) it lends itself far more in today's rooftop-solar-filled world to central control and taxation.
Maybe Apple could have added a new category with a separate list of "Free Media" or something, but seriously? I'm no fan of Apple but this is a storm in a molehill.
Fundamental concepts, like books, that have been around since the dawn of civilisation are generally not patentable. Prior art or something.
So things like rounded corners, for example?
