Just buy more stock when it dips ever now and then. I sometimes wonder if the people who files these law suites are actually stockholders because even if they didn't win the law suit they could make a lot from driving the price down, reinvesting and making profit when it comes back up.
Dang, I got to stop thinking like this. For the record the shares I do own would barely pay most legal fees in such a suit.
These people that wast time and money trying to sue. Why did they wait so long? Apple had a similar touch screen with the Newton in 1993. Long before any of this. This should be tossed out quickly. I would like to see Apple stand up for itself though and its share holders.
Update: InformationWeek notes that Peter V. Boesen, the owner of the patent in question, is a surgeon who was recently sentenced to 51 months in federal penitentiary for defrauding the healthcare system.
"Civil court records show that Boesen, through SP Technologies, has filed a number of patent suits in the past, including claims against Canon, LG Electronics, and Kyocera."
In the case regarding the healthcare system, Boesen was ordered to repay the state and private insurers more than $900,000.
"Boesen is free pending an appeal," wrote InformationWeek. "No word on whether he is using an iPhone to text his lawyer."
