Steve Wozniak, Co-Founder of Apple, Questions Sense of Apple Litigation for Very Small Things that are Really Not That Innovative as German Court Reaches Another Terrible Patent Decision in the EU

Steve Wozniak was the tech inventor behind the founding of the Apple company while his mundane partner Steve Jobs understood how to sell technology to the uncritical masses, to steal from others usable technology that Apple itself did not have and to market and patent that technology as proprietary to the Apple firm.

"Woz" enters our "good guys" list for his recent statement -- via the BBC and Bloomberg -- that he personally hates the recent litigation on patents by Apple about "very small things" that he does not "really call that innovative".

See Apple’s Wozniak....

and Google Motorola....

The German court decision here is another terrible judicial decision in this field, greatly reducing respect for "the law" in general, a law which has become a blatant farce via woefully wrong patent laws and even worse patent law court decisions, making a mockery of the capitalist market system and employing preliminary injunctions as judicially misused weapons in cases where they are totally out of place for falsely patented innovations that are of marginal usefulness and which constitute miniscule elements of products.

As a judge, if we found in favor of Apple in any of these cases, we would enter 1 cent in damages TOTAL for these egregious, ludicrous cases, and let the world get on with its business....

Woz is quoted to say:
"“I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody’s technologies.” "
Right, Woz, but totally impossible, and that is why you had Jobs as a partner, who apparently proceeded from the premise that our world is a wicked place inhabited by many greedy and stupid people, and he knew how to use that to his advantage.

A quote - rightly or wrongly - attributed to Albert Einstein states:
“Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I am not yet completely sure about the universe.”
The patent world is a perfect example of the wisdom of that observation. It fits right in with the terrible events one is confronted with daily in the daily news -- human stupidity in action on a wide scale.
