News of Apple’s patent infringement lawsuit broke earlier this month and did not come as much of a surprise, given the relative frequency of IP lawsuits being launched in the mobile phone industry. A fellow classmate blogged about the lawsuit and the nature of computer programmes. It is no secret that Apple’s iPhone has revolutionized cellular phone devices. Since its release in 2007, the iPhone has dominated the smart phone market; which prior to the iPhone was a small niche market for tech enthusiasts.
