Apple "fined" $533 Million for patent violation

Apple's iTunes has violated some patents according to a Texas court. The holder of the patents is the company Smartflash LCC that basically seems to make a living out of holding patents. :boohoo:

Apple claims that the company has no American representation and that they did not use the patents anyway.

Smartflash makes no products, has no employees, creates no jobs, has no U.S. presence, and is exploiting our patent system to seek royalties for technology Apple invented

I thought that Microsoft had invented everything until I learned that Apple had even invented the rounded corner.....

I wonder how much dough the law firm got from the deal.

That amount is chump change for Apple, is like me been sued and I have to pay $5.33 to get the monkey off my back. In returm I will give them $100 and buy the patent.
