Apple should not be granted patent for iPod UI

ZDNet's Matt Loney believes that Apple should not be allowed to succeed in patenting the iPod user interface. "Few could deny that the iPod is a superb example of industrial engineering, or that the user interface is one of the coolest around, or, indeed, that the accompanying iTunes service may yet prove to be the one that makes the music industry recognise it can mix with the Internet after all," writes Loney. "But I have yet to see anything in the iPod interface that I have not seen before elsewhere. If this patent is granted, it will simply serve to show what a car-wreck the US patents system has become, and should serve as a warning to governments elsewhere." Source: ZDNet UK
