Apple statement, from VP Katie Cotton:
The lawsuits between Apple and Samsung were about much more than
patents or money. They were about values. At Apple, we value
originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best
products on earth. We make these products to delight our
customers, not for our competitors to flagrantly copy.
It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one
company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or
technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other
companies. Consumers have the right to choices, and they know what
they are buying when they purchase Samsung products.
