[QUOTE=coolcolors;2641997]This comes from a nation that steals patients and pirates movies and software… that is just laughable… :Z :Z :Z :Z[/QUOTE]
Wait! So you’re saying, that just because there are companies doing piracy and copy-cating in China, it is absolutely okay for Apple to steal the patents of a real IT company that surely is not pirating anything (because they are the ones developing Mandarin & Cantonese voice software for their own nation, so clearly they are the inventors and not the pirates)…
Patent infringement is bad from whatever side it comes from. China has done a LOT of piracy, but it doesn’t mean that the ones doing the invention need to be punished for it! And Apple has a long history of stealing smaller company and unknown developers ideas and then telling them “SUE US IF YOU CAN!” just because they know these tiny firms and developers cannot handle the costs for a lawsuit.
Patents are there for a reason, but it looks like only Apple is the one allowed to protect its own according to lots of the reactions I’ve been seeing everywhere!! Not talking about you coolcolors though, cause you’re cool ;), but I’m just talking in general
