I see. So if the government says a company is allowed to patent an idea, you are going to cry foul on the company when they decide to patent an idea. That makes no sense. It's called playing by the rules.
Let me be a bit more concise: I don't claim to be an expert on patents. For that matter, IANAL. But I know something is ludicrous when I see it; and there's no way that a rectangle with a rounded edge is a logical patent. If it is, then whoever made this logo right here has got problems ahead of them (Despite predating the iPhone).
