"Basically they behave as if they know everything? Correct?"

Ashish, exactly. May be they are brilliant and have a good knowledge about many high-funda things, but poor in basics and with common things.

Wale,

If you mean by Research/Patents today;then I agree wholeheartedly(Majority Patents filed by University Professors) but if you say Inventions which have practical use;then the Private Sector  Still Dominates here.

After all,Work experience matters enormously here.

Wale,

You are making a lot of suppositions in your post here(which may/may not be true).

This is why I believe its best for the Courts to decide this issue properly.

The way I look at it is this is just a way for Boston University to Skim some cash off Apple.

Why is that?

The Patent was filed so long ago-Not just that but also Ipads have been selling for over 3 years now.

Suddenly their Legal Department woke up(citing Patent infringement issues)???

I find it hard to believe.

Its just that two years are left before they lose all rights on their patent;Hence their Legal Department is just fishing(like all Lawyers in America;everyone just wants Easy Money).

Regards

Ashish.

I believe there's strong tie between US universities, where inventions do take place and commercial firms. Funding univeristies' reasearches do come from the big players in the industry like Apple, Intel, Microsoft, Google and etc. Just wondering why university like Boston could make this known to the public.

Nevertheless, If Boston University claim founds to be true. Why hasnt Apple paid or settled royality on that particular technology for so long? Another prolong court battle over patent infringement involves Apple? That's my worry after Samsung/Apple's saga.

Wale,

Wow!

29 Billion in Losses???

That's a Gigantic amount of losses to suffer for the US Economy!

Even if we work with the assumption that this is a Higher-end estimate(what do Most Professors know about Markets or the real world???);I still find the Numbers really,really Huge.

The Article though is Hugely Biased (in favor of Apple).

Have Apple really infringed on these Issues?

I guess we will have to leave that for the Court system to decide now.

Is'nt this why Apple spends so much on Lawyers?

This is something equally interesting(on Cost Differential of Iphones Globally ) that I came across

Tells you a lot about Subsidies and Taxes does'nt it?

Boston University and Apple Patent Imbroglio?

>>is'nt that why we call them Geeks in the first place???<<

May be this:

Boston University says that iPad, iPhone, and MacBook Air products include an infringing thin film semiconductor device. It's not clear if that's Apple's A6 processor, or some other chip - almost certainly built by Samsung or another partner - but in the antique language of patents, this inclusion causes Boston University "substantial and irreparable damage."
