5 Most Controversial Memos In Tech History

#1 Tim Cook

Following Apple’s big win in U.S. court today against Samsung, Apple CEO Tim Cook has sent a memo to employees. It stated, “Many of you have been closely following the trial against Samsung in San Jose for the past few weeks. We chose legal action very reluctantly and only after repeatedly asking Samsung to stop copying our work. For us this lawsuit has always been about something much more important than patents or money. It’s about values. We value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth. And we do this to delight our customers, not for competitors to flagrantly copy.”

And he also added, "We applaud the jury for finding Samsung’s behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn’t right." The memo was later leaked.
