Apple has shown multiple times that it doesn't care what anyone thinks about its disgusting behaviour (not even its customers.)
Apple arrogantly (and alas, probably correctly) believes that its core constituency is zealous enough and stupid enough to forgive Apple for almost anything. There's no fanboi like a Mac fanboi, so Apple knows it can run roughshod over its customers with impunity.
Unfortunately, until Apple-purchasing sheep wake up and vote with their wallets, Apple will continue to get away with evil stunts like the one described in the patent.
I'm really disappointed every time I go to a FOSS event and see the hordes of Mac laptops. People just don't seem to get it.
