Now that all those people know where the ‘1’ was on the old logo they can spend the next 25 years looking for the ‘F’ in the new one.

What. The. Fuck. Man. It's so stupid that companies can even think they can get away with that shit.

Not sure I get what the problem is. All companies do this for the style of their own bags for branding reasons. The patent also covers the materials it made from for their specific purposes.

Didnt Samsung or Sony try this sort of thing with packaging? basically a cardboard box? I think Kev got it though. It isnt just a paper bag.

Recycled paper bags are not an innovation, of course. The innovation, in this case, is how Apple intends to hold the bag together with such a high proportion of recycled material. White paper bags made of recycled material tend to be fairly flimsy due to the amount of bleach used, so Apple has come up with a bundle of alterations that should help its bags remain both pearly white and environmentally friendly.

Those alterations include fancy reinforcements at the folds and gussets of the bag, another one at the bottom that sticks to the sides, and a handle “formed entirely of paper fibre yarn knitted in an 8-stitch circular knit pattern”.



Sadly the patent application makes no mention of a headphone jack.

As said by Big Kev, these sorts of packaging patents are common practice in business today. They are not trying to patent the idea of 'paper bag' but rather their specific design and its unique features. Don't see the big deal.
