Help Desk, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

JIM WASHINGTON: The patent infringement lawsuit between Apple and Samsung continued to develop today as Apple sent Samsung a suggested list of ways that Samsung could re-design its products to avoid infringement.

JIM WASHINGTON: This list, Apple claims, will help Samsung design tablets and smartphones that will not, in any way, infringe on Apple's patent portfolio. An Apple spokesman joins us to explain.

BINKY (STEVE): Thank you, Jim. Apple feels that it is possible for Samsung to create attention-getting products without infringing on our intellectual property. Our suggestions are dramatic design choices that, if used, we absolutely will not sue them over.

JIM WASHINGTON: One of your suggestions is "large, sharp spikes along the edges that occasionally launch themselves into the users eyes."

BINKY (STEVE): Apple absolutely will not sue if they use that.
