I think both companies would strongly disagree.


And I think common sense would say "they're both bottles, that start narrow, get thick about a third down, taper down, and get thick at the bottom." The only differences are the grooves and the logos.

If you removed the labels, people would be hard pressed to say which is which. On top of that, they change the styles of their bottles frequently, so those images are of soda bottles at one point in time, not even necessarily the same point.

So if they don't sue each other over the shape of their bottles...

Wow. I wonder, would you say the same thing about Coke if Pepsi started bottling their soda using the same shape as a Coca Cola bottle so they sued? After all, Coke didn't invent curved glass, did they? Is it now Fascism to protect your patents, trade marks, and trade dress?

I more thought of the fascist way that apple likes to sue you if you like, jailbreak their phone, or suing you for giving a leaked preview of a FireWire breakout box, not in the Samsung vs Apple way. But that is the boring business side of Apple. Still their developers are working their ass of to make Apple's products nice, and that is the only thing that matters. :smile2:

First, I know of no one being sued for jailbreaking their own phone on any platform. Maybe you have a link?

As for the other suits, then you must think all companies are Fascist, because those are the result of some one breaking an NDA agreement of the same type that all companies use.

CTphpnwb, I actually see very less difference between the two bottles.

Also, stop the damned argument already!

@Abacus-64k - I do believe (at least in the US) this was put to rest. I think you are confusing the "inadvertent bricking of jailbroken iDevices and ever increasing the pain in the rear to jail break" with a lawsuit.

Federal regulators lifted a cloud of uncertainty when they announced it was lawful to hack or “jailbreak” an iPhone, declaring Monday there was “no basis for copyright law to assist Apple in protecting its restrictive business model.”

Nah, i ain't got a link to prove it :( ,just heard a rumor or so. But i know that Apple has the right to block you're iPhone if they find out that you have been tampering with it, in the manner of jailbreaking.

Well, it turns out that Coke agreed with you, and those **Fascists** didn't like it one bit.

I am more the supporter of the android OS, because of it's down to earth openness, and badass apps. I have never tried the Apple iPhone, iPad, iThis, iThat, but I don't hate or downgrade their products, because it took a long time for someone to develop and perfect them. I only don't like their business strategy, which is frankly... kinda fascist.

this is a good example of a really dumb post.

people keep using fascism to describe everything they disagree with....
"perhaps that word does not mean what you think it means"

Pffsst.. sounds like someone's being a little fascist on how words are defined. Geeze... maybe I want to use words how I think they should and not how corporate fat-cats and The Man want me to use them? It's about time the people took back their words and definitions from the power hungry overlords! #occupydictionaries

kinda a bit off topic but maybe not-- did you happen to see the guy who has authored 200k books? I would post the site but I do not have access to those at work. 200,000 books seem to be a little through the roof.-- I wonder if he is a fascist...
