C'mon guys... Apple won a patent for a, please hear this: "A system and method causes a computer to detect and perform actions on structures identified in computer data"... it is the troll jargon for a web search. How on earth they granted that? Patents are supposed to protect the development, not kill it. And then... copy what: the aspect ratio? or the touch screen? or a higher screen definition? or the BOM? So, I would not be able to use an ARM? This is getting ridiculous...

Why don't Samsung come up with its own design and not copy Apple's. Why infringe on Apple's design. Apple has every right to sue them.

I have no doubt that there is plenty of more evidence to be presented. But it doesn't surprise me that Samsung (or anyone else) would conduct a detailed analysis of the iPhone's features etc. in the course of creating a product to compete with it. Sounds like a standard practice.

This will be interesting case. Samsung should be punished for their acts.

How do you draw the line between investigating and "being inspired" by competing products and..um...er...copying them?
