Just thought this was a little interesting, I'm pretty sure apple will pay the fee for using the design.

From my point of view apple kinda a copied googles design with the nexus they made it longer and of course added lte.

 

Somehow i doubt apple will lose if they are sued for LTE.

Haha that's too funny there.... Watch it get tossed out and apple continues its claims on such things against others..... That's how crazy good their law firm is. Lol

I am going with a mixture of this, dumb jurors, poor justice system, and excellent law firm.

Really has to do with the trance everyone else has been put into to think apple is the greatest ever done by their marketing team. Lol

I am sure they will change their design of their clock. Not a big deal! Probably some junior designer saw a clock design that he liked and was not aware it was copyrighted. If the money demands are not exorbitant, they might elect to pay. Either way the guy will probably lose his job.

BTW, my world clock does not show that design. Do I have to put in a Swiss city? Oh, never mind it's for the iPad. I have not upgrade yet.

 

LOL, as I hit reply, the edit took effect. I found this link anyway... http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/hold-on-a-second-swiss-rail-company-claims-apple-stole-design-of-iconic-station-clocks/2012/09/21/7c539b2e-03cf-11e2-9132-f2750cd65f97_story.html

I'm no Apple fan. But I don't believe this infringement was a conscious decision by the company to copy. However, since they did infringe, even if unintentional, they just need to pay the copyright holder and move on.

    • Added, and 2 more estimated sites: T-Mobile eNB 876480. Looks like its located at (40.62210996397784, -73.97627312607108), as the tower looks like a Sprint setup. T-Mobile eNB 875632. Both this site and Sprint eNB 9022 seem to be located at (40.61640722407462, -73.96985178560767).
    • Many of these sites I am uploading are for sites that do not exist, yet.  Although, I suppose I could go into NR only mode every time I connect to a new site, and then switch back, allowing all the TAC NR trails that occur to now have a home. Ideally, I would love to ne able to add the TAC's myself.  I have the NR Trails CSV file downloaded, and I see all the TAC-less NR entries.  Is there any way I can edit and manually upload them myself?  Maybe create a portal for such an upload?  Or at least give me a way to create at least one manual entry for every new site? Robert
    • Could we send the TAC as -1 if it’s invalid? Then, if there’s and existing site that matches the other info, I could match the web data entry up with it (despite the TAC being absent). 
    • Mine has been enabled.  And they show up in my device logs with the TAC null. Robert
    • If the TAC is missing, an entry is still recorded in the log, but it would not be included in uploads.. so you could probably manipulate a trail log export to add the data to the map if you were able to nail down the sites without the TAC. EDIT: Sites with a missing TAC are only recorded in the log if the option to do so is enabled (Logger > Log Sites with Missing TAC).
