Kanzatec: Apple at centre of 60% of major mobile patent cases

Kanzatec: Apple at centre of 60% of major mobile patent casesAww man, I freakin’ love these infographic chart type things, and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. Check it out below; it was too massive to use as the main image.

Intellectual property consulting firm, Kanzatec, has produced a graphic titled “Who is Suing Whom?” showing all the major patent disputes. And guess who’s right at the heart of it?

Yes, it’s California’s finest, Apple, sitting bang in the middle, with Kodak, RIM, HTC, Samsung, Nokia, Motorola, Microsoft, Google, and several others around the outside.

Of course, Apple isn’t involved in patent disputes with all of them (not directly, anyway), but Team Cupertino accounts for around 60% of the suits. Amazing.

A few months ago, Tim Cook sighed: "I've always hated litigation. I continue to hate it. I just want people to invent their own stuff.”

However, Feisal Mosleh, a senior vice president at Kanzatec, says: “I would speculate that Apple will continue to be at the center of the litigation map of large mobile IT companies for as long as it maintains its dominant place in the market.”

Yeah, we hear that, bro.

are you sure you didn't mean to to say "center of [INITIATING] about 60 percent of the major mobile cases" and confusing that [ to cause or facilitate the beginning of ] with being a "more attractive target"

after all apple initiating bogus UK Patent Suits that get shot down doesn't exactly make all your major hardware suppliers and their high profit associates want to do (4% ! of their) business with you in the future, perhaps apple may find themselves with a new product they cant actually make with the grade A parts one day as they cant get all the vendors in the future as they start to boycott them for being to much trouble as one example, and there's already been calls for that to potentially happen if this bogus litigation clogging up the worlds courts continues....
