안녕히 가세요 ( annyeonghi kaseyo.) not Sayonara

Err, just to say but Koreans do not appreciate - AT ALL - being mistaken for Japanese.

Not only are the countries staunch competitors but they have a long standing and cordial dislike of one another.

Putting "sayonara" and "ninja" in the same sentence as "Samsung" is about as ill advised as saying

that Jaguar is a famous German luxury car manufacturer or that The Register is a shining example of 21st century French journalism..... :-)

Why are Japanese words inappropriate in an article about a lawsuit happening in Japan? If the trial was happening in Germany then you might have a point, but now...not so much.

So They Continue Battle Around the World

Given that some they win, others they lose, and there seems to be no clear-cut winner, I'm betting that when it's all over, neither side will come out ahead in the cash department. Ok... I was wrong. The lawyers will be the only cash winners.

No, you're still right. The lawyers aren't on either side.

Re: This is the part ...

I'm the more left wondering why Apple gets two Samsung patents invalidated at a snap of a judge's finger, yet Apple gets granted a patent for rounded corners.

Something fishy is going on with the public mindset in terms of the concept of "subjective".

The courts need to stop this ridiculous saga now. These court battles are just hindering innovation, and preventing the next iteration of technology from being developed, because the message is being sent that you should not bother to invent new things unless you have a huge wallet to defend yourself in court, no small inventor would have a chance at bringing out their own products in this environment. Judges should refuse on-mass to take these cases on, or fine both companies 100% of a years worldwide revenue if they try and lodge another case like this again, that will stop them in their tracks pretty quickly given how much these companies earn
