Why Apple needs to lose the Samsung appeal



I have previously written about how patents have become a destructive force in the technology sector. Fledgling startups have to constantly worry about big companies such as Apple or Samsung—or worst of all—a patent troll, bankrupting them with a frivolous lawsuit. Research has shown between 1990 and 2010, patent lawsuits have caused a loss of half-a-trillion dollars in wealth and forced U.S. companies to divert substantial resources from production to litigation support.
