Aww 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.
