    Perhaps people wouldn’t file these ridiculous “design” patents if the USPTO could do a better / decent job at ruling on them. Jobs recent patent for the OS X dock system is obviously copied from Joshua Davis’ Flash menu work from ’98. It was a widely known accordian type menubar which had the distinct feature of magnifying the item under the cursor, and OS X blatently copied the look and feel of the animation as well. What a douche.

    and doesn’t it clearly state “PROXIMATE”

    That means “near to” as opposed to “actually on it”.

    As I read it this only applies to the effect you get when you APPROACH the bar, not when you are actually on the icons themselves?
