Apple Doesn’t Own the Page Turn

Big surprise: it takes a patent attorney like Matt Macari to properly explain patents, not a blogger:

Think of the D’713 patent as a very basic flip book depicting the type of virtual page turn claimed (shown below). It may be tempting to look at all of this as essential to emulating physical page turns on a device, but the patent simply isn’t that broad.

The stupidity of this patent is only challenged by the stupidity of the initial coverage of it.
