Low Latency No. 10: Good artists copy, great artists steal

Low Latency chimes in on Apple's recent litigation against the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Blake Stevenson

Apple is trying to get the Samsung Galaxy Nexus removed from stores because of a few Apple patents, including ones that cover "slide to unlock" and "word completion" technology. Is the recent surge of mobile phone patent suits the end of tech innovation altogether, or is the entire patent system due for a serious refresh?

Low Latency is a weekly comic on CNET's Crave blog written by CNET editor and podcast host Jeff Bakalar and illustrated by Blake Stevenson. Be sure to check Crave every Thursday at 8 a.m. PT for new panels!
