Apple is by no means the worst offender. In fact, there are organizations that are solely dedicated to buying and/or filing patents and waiting for someone to file a simialr patent. Then they sue. It's one thing to defend your IP but another to use the system as a weapon (Apple) or a source of revenue (patent trolls.)

I think some of the things companies are pantenting are a little rediculous. It's just a cash grab for Apple. Was Apple necessarily the first company to come up with this?

If you want to know just how broken the patent system is, just look at patent D670,713, filed by Apple and approved this week by the United States Patent Office. This design patent, titled, "Display screen or portion thereof with animated graphical user interface," gives Apple the exclusive rights to the page turn in an e-reader application. Do you think our patent system should be changed so that companies dont misuse extra cash ?
