iOS• iOS is Apples mobile version ofthe OSX operating system used on Applecomputers.• Accounts as an operating system on 21% ofsmartphones sales in Q4 of 2012.• Apple does not licence it to run on non-Appledevices
Symbian• Symbian was a mobile operating system (OS)and computing platform designedfor smartphones and currently maintainedby Accenture.• It was the most popular smartphone OS on aworldwide average until the end of 2010,when it was overtaken by Android.• Versions : s60v5, Anna, Belle.

Patents• A patent is a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state toan inventor or their assignee for a limited period of time, inexchange for the public disclosure of the invention. An invention isa solution to a specific technological problem, and may be aproduct or a process. Patents are a form of intellectual property.• The exclusive right granted to a patentee in most countries is theright to prevent others from making, using, selling, or distributingthe patented invention without permission.• Typically, however, a patent application must include one or moreclaims that define the invention. These claims must meet relevantpatentability requirements, such as novelty and non-obviousness.
Legal frame work of patents• Under the World Trade Organizations (WTO) Agreementon Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights,patents should be available in WTO member states for anyinvention, in all fields of technology,and the term ofprotection available should be a minimum of twentyyears. Nevertheless, there are variations on what ispatentable subject matter from country to country.• The grant and enforcement of patents are governed bynational laws, and also by international treaties, wherethose treaties have been given effect in national laws.Patents are granted by national or regional patent offices.A given patent is therefore only useful for protecting aninvention in the country in which that patent is granted.
Legal framework of patents-2• Commonly, a nation forms a patent officewith responsibility for operating that nationspatent system, within the relevant patentlaws. The patent office generally hasresponsibility for the grant of patents, withinfringement being the remit of nationalcourts.
Pros of patents• Patents provide incentives for economically efficient research anddevelopment (R&D).• In accordance with the original definition of the term "patent," patentsfacilitate and encourage disclosure of innovations into the public domainfor the common good. If inventors did not have the legal protection ofpatents, in many cases, they would prefer or tend to keep theirinventions secret• In many industries (especially those with high fixed costs and either lowmarginal costs or low reverse engineering costs — computer processors,and pharmaceuticals for example), once an invention exists, the cost ofcommercialization (testing, tooling up a factory, developing a market,etc.) is far more than the initial conception cost. (For example, theinternal "rule of thumb" at several computer companies in the 1980swas that post-R&D costs were 7-to-1). Unless there is some way toprevent copies from competing at the marginal cost of production,companies dont invest in making the invention a product.
Cons of patents• Patents reward and ABET misplaced pharmaceuticalR&D priorities, which they describe as being directedto creating incremental improved treatments fordiseases prevalent in wealthy countries and awayfrom diseases that cause devastation in thedeveloping world.• Increases prices across the spectrum due to theaddition of royalties to all cost prices• in case of ground breaking or revolutionaryinventions they allow a single company to dominatethe market in a way a kin to a monopoly
Patent infringement• Patent infringement is the commission of aprohibited act with respect to a patentedinvention without permission from thepatent holder. Permission may typically begranted in the form of a license. Thedefinition of patent infringement may vary byjurisdiction, but it typically includes using orselling the patented invention
Common defences used ininfringement cases• In response to allegations of infringement, an accused infringingparty will generally assert one or more of the following:• it was not practicing the patented invention;• it was not performing any infringing act in the territory covered bythe patent;• the patent has expired;• the patent (or the particular claim(s) alleged to be infringed) isinvalid, because the invention in question does not meetpatentability or includes a formal defect, rendering the patentinvalid or unenforceable;• it has obtained a license under the patent;• the patent holder is infringing patent rights belonging to theaccused infringing party, and the party may resolve the dispute insettlement or cross-licensing.
