Graph has been updated to show that Motorola is now suing Apple (Apple’s #1…most sued) and also because apparently Microsoft and HTC settled their lawsuit. Done updating. The point was to improve upon the original, not constantly keep it up to date.
John Gruber linked to an article earlier today which includes a chart depicting “who’s suing who” in the technology sector. He wasn’t impressed with the design of the chart so I took a stab at recreating it.
Two stabs, now. Here’s my first attempt.
Each circle is sized based on how often they’re being sued. Smallest size is for those who are being sued the least. Interestingly, Kodak isn’t being sued but is going crazy suing other people. Several of the companies aren’t suing anyone at all on the chart, so I went ahead and shaded them in purple.
Here’s the original.
Here’s another recreation by Design Language News. (Much prettier and cleverer than mine, for sure.)
And another set by Paul Conigliaro. (I like that he showed the data in two ways, but I do think that color coding does that without having to actually make two charts.)
