Some day all the words in the world will be patent and we will have to pay fees just to talk.

Sooo, winning over a billion from Samsung adds to the your price, because it (according to you) wastes millions. What math are you using???
Although I agree that the patent system itself does need to be redone, I don't agree with these other statements which are clearly misguided and inaccurate.The word "Memory" is a trademark name of a GAME. The "word itself is not patented. Obviously, just like any other product name within an industry. This wouldn't be limited to iOS game development in any way, shape or form. It would apply to any GAME manufacturer that also want to name their game Memory. Just like you can't make tissue and call it "Kleenex".
Again the patent isn't for, "scroll through a photo gallery using a touchscreen." It is for the method right down to the minute details of exactly what is being shown, including the glimpse of the next picture as well as the way it bounces back. There is a lot of time, money and resources (let alone the idea of it) that goes into that. For another company to painstakingly copy and use it exactly on another product is ridiculous. If it was your idea, time, money and resources used to make it, I'm certain you would feel differently.

Well, I guess the apple fanboys and girls will keep talking smack even though the idea of claiming copyright infringement on a touchscreen (that Apple didn't even invent or think up themselves) is a joke. Don't worry, they'll come up with something else to sue someone over and eventually Apple will claim the air you breath and sue the whole world. Stay classy fanboy.
