Release the iPhone 5 and We'll Sue You, Warns Chinese Company

Um. Okay. Deep breath. The folks behind the Goophone i5, the Android-powered iPhone 5 clone, are threatening to sue Apple if the California-based tech giant releases the iPhone 5 and if it looks like the Goophone i5. Or something.


This is probably a publicity stunt—one with a mind boggling YouTube video. The reason why Goophone says they can sue Apple is that their product was released before the iPhone 5, and if the iPhone 5 looks like the Goophone, then Apple is copying it. Try to follow that logic vapor trail. I dare you.

Why the outrage? Is it because someone else is doing it to dear Apple? Because this is basically what they just did to Samsung, and are threatening to do to everyone else who develops a "rectangular, curved-corner shape with a screen."
