Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on Samsung patent verdict: ‘I hate it and I don’t agree with it’ (The Next Web)

Steve "Woz" Wozniak: the one bright spot in the wretched hive of scum and villainy and patent abuse that is Apple. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak on Samsung patent verdict: ‘I hate it and I don’t agree with it’

In fact, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak hates the result, doesn’t agree with it, and thinks it will be overruled. Samsung will of course appeal, and this case will go back and forth for months still, but Wozniak just wishes everyone could get along.

“I hate it,” Wozniak told Bloomberg in Shanghai today, referring to the patent battle. “I don’t think the decision of California will hold. And I don’t agree with it — very small things I don’t really call that innovative. I wish everybody would just agree to exchange all the patents and everybody can build the best forms they want to use everybody’s technologies.”

People concerned about software freedom have been disappointed, to say the least, about the recent legal victory of the patent-abusing bastards at Apple. How, in the presence of large amounts of prior art, could the jury have found in Apple's favor?

It seems the answer is simple: they skipped those key arguments because they were "bogging us down".
