Hello, I appriciate your writing on this specific topic. I'd like to add. Apple wont ever become a Monopoly, anyone with brains can see Samsung? do it better... I mean, they got sued for using things like "round corners"???...
Samsung phones are better, and it has nothing to do with the shape of their corners. Imo apple had some charm, even though their phones aren't the best... but they just lost that charm.
Apple's logic is that they only owe .5 cents because they offending item is the baseband chip, and should only pay for the profit of this item. If that's the case, with Android being free and open source then Apple is due no royalty or fees because of the 0% profit that would have been gained of a graphical design.

Apple is expected to rest sometime on Monday and then Samsung will begin its defense.
