Comments on: Lesson from the smartphone wars: Litigation is not a business plan http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2014/05/19/lesson-from-the-smartphone-wars-litigation-is-not-a-business-plan/ On the Case Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:42:45 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: jbeech http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2014/05/19/lesson-from-the-smartphone-wars-litigation-is-not-a-business-plan/#comment-2357 Sat, 24 May 2014 16:22:50 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/?p=3413#comment-2357 History doesn’t repeat but it rhymes. At the birth of aviation, the Wrights had the patent for wing warping to control roll. Moreover, they were aggressive in pursuit of all those they deem violators soon exhausting their coffers on lawyers. Meanwhile, Curtis invented the hinged aileron as a way around the wing-warp patent for roll-control. Today, the aileron remains the dominant method of establishing roll-control in aircraft.

As for the Wrights, they became a footnote in aviation-history and actually were bought out by Curtis (becoming as Curtis-Wright, famous for their radial engine powerplants) thus giving credence to the old saw about how the more things change, the more they remain the same.
