Mark Hibben with a good perspective on Apple’s efforts to litigate Android smartphone manufacturers. Was it worth it?
If Apple’s legal maneuvers were intended to curtail or at least slow down the growth of Android, then they have been an abject failure so far. Even when recent court decisions have gone in Apple’s favor, they have not resulted in any effective ban of Android products. With so many cases and decisions being handed down, it’s easy to miss the larger trend. Apple’s legal war against Android never really had much of a chance of success.
Why? In essence, Android is not a rip-off of iPhone.
