    Apple stealing technology for their new phones ?

    Post by Angie baby on Sat 17 Oct 2015, 12:51 pm

    A US jury has ordered technology giant Apple to pay more than $234m (152m) in damages for patent infringement.

    The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, the patent licensing arm of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said the verdict was important to guard its inventions from unauthorised use.

    The jury had earlier decided that Apple incorporated patented microchip technology into some iPhones and iPads without permission.

    I saw this one here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-34559232

    ...........................................................

    As I see it this is the Apple monster getting slapped down for using technology that they did not develop themselves.

    When I was at Uni' I learned the saying that: "Power corrupts, but absolute power corrupts absolutely", and as far as Apple is concerned, this is very true

    Well done Wisconsin University ! Twisted Evil

    Yes, this was also in my Daily Record yesterday Angie.

    These people will try anything that they think they will get away with.

    I am glad that they were caught and fined. Twisted Evil

    And now, using this template, many more companies that steal intellectual property should go the same way that Apple has gone.

    You're right about that Zath', but some of them just keep getting away with it.

    The police, who are supposed to protect us against such tricks, are just not interested in technological crimes, even although they do spend a lot of their available money on fraud.
