Recently nokia won case against APPLE, may be this event inspired Samsung to sue Apple. Did Samsung really cheat APPLE by copying Apple design ?

I think the reason they file in the US is that is where all the lawyers are.

The biggest problem is that the Galaxy products have a bigger and more brilliant display than the iPhone 4. As far as look and feel, it's Android versus IOS and nothing more than that. HP should sue them both..

I hope they can figure out a way to settle without such expensive litigation. I'm guessing the costs are somehow passed on to the customer. The focus should be on technology innovation and design, but I see how such tight competition and the collaboration and manufacturing of chips in the same places causes these types of issues. I think the general public is not aware that there actually patent trolls that look to start these types of talks all over the world. They often bully smaller suppliers. Also, with the demand for both Apple and Samsung products being so high, I really doubt the government will want to ban the sales. I think it is interesting that the complaints are just filed in the US...what about international law? Samsung and Apple products are all over the world. I would like to hear stories about this type of thing in other markets such as in Brazil or other well-populated and tech savvy areas.

It is pretty bad when you sue your customer. This could be very bad for both companies.

Patent infringement lawsuits have been a very "hot" topic lately. IP needs to be protected. Yet, the number of lawsuits seem to be overwhelming. What would Uncle Sam do?
