At one point I had a great aversion to all things Korean. I had bought the first Hyundai automobile and it rusted out in 4 years… Now, though, Samsung is fighting back against one of my enemies, Apple. Apple has tried to prevent Android/Linux smart thingies from displacing Apple’s iThingies based on price/performance by filing baseless suits against Samsung all over the world for patent/copyright infringement. Rather than bending to the will of the bully, Samsung is fighting back, refuting the charges well and filing its own claims of infringement against Apple. There are 21 actions globally.
As we saw in SCO v World, it is best to fight the bully when so much is at stake. Samsung appears to realize that there is far more profit in selling Android/Linux smart thingies than not. Good for Samsung. Good for the world. Boooo, Apple.
