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.

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.

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
