Journal Journal: Apple Does Make Some Good Points

During the course of the day, I read an article about some of the lawsuits Apple is involved in. There's one key point they've made in their arguments that I agree with.

If a manufacturer licenses patents, their products are covered by those patent agreements. Consumers of those licensed products should NOT be subject to double-dipping by the patent holders. What would be the point of licensing a patent if all your customers were subject to infringement lawsuits?
