As Wolff correctly writes, inter alia:
"Apple came close to destroying its business in the late 1980s by pursuing a suit against Microsoft claiming that Windows infringed the look and feel of the Mac desktop metaphor. Apple focused its hopes and business future on this lawsuit, while its market share dwindled. Rather than competing, it litigated. And lost."Now Apple is following the same path regarding its current products and the long-term end will be the same as it was with Microsoft, when Apple nearly self-destructed. As Wolff writes:
"[A]nybody with any sense of history know[s] this is going to end badly [for Apple]."Take a look at Wolff's article to see how this whole terrible patent mess in the USA is viewed overseas.
