    So they are patenting what they hope to be a more efficient method which is hopefully just as accurate. Android has already released a version on their phones and of course various police forces worldwide use face recognition to identify criminals on cctv.How long will it be before more court battles over this occur? Of course it will be very difficult to prove as this is software rather than hardware. It is very important to remember that the idea is not new just the method.

    All this stuff is over my head but it sounds like Apple has a new technology for this. Mousetraps aren't new but people patent new mousetraps every year.

    I suppose this is the truth of the majority of patents, what is new and truly original? The Iphone was not the first touch screen nore was it the first smart phone, however it bought things together well, similarly the IPad, it was not the first touch screen computer, but the press like to sell it as such, it was however the first device to work smoothly. This is why many of the court battles should not be happing, instead the technology should be licensed licensed, we would all benefit from this
