Steve Jobs: "Good artists copy; great artists steal." "It's more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy." Bill Gates to Steve Jobs: "Hey, Steve, just because you broke into Xerox's house before I did and stole the TV doesn't mean that I can't go in later and take the stereo."

These Asian firms except Japan are growing up. I can infer that Samsung copied Apple. But if that is illegal is left for the court to decide. Apple copied Blackberry because without BB Steve Jobs might not have dreamth of iPhone.

This is getting cloudy. So, Apple truly wanted Samsung to come clean before they embarked on this ugly public show. The fact that Samsung is open to go this path means they have confidence they are doing something right.

The license Apple offered is apparently charged based on per-device royalties

Maybe that is the case, but do you want a world where thieves prosper the most? Would you want someone stealing your ideas that you took time and effort to develop? Your missing my point dude.

What evidence do you have that innovation would stop?As long as there's lots of money to be made I think companies and individuals will continue trekking right along with new ideas to get their hands on it.

I thought per-unit payments were royalties, and the license is one-time per time period if not perpetual.

Samsung admitted stealing from Sony. Why do you think that they are any different with Apple?

You're assuming Samsung is guilty. They're not asking it to pass, they're say Apple is full of it. For example, dare look at this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UcKqyn-gUbY

Personal feeling, but if everyone let's these things just pass. What's the point of being a front runner when all that the other companies have to do is copy the technology right after someone builds it. If the world keeps on letting China and South Korea get away with this, we will eventually look into the world where innovation will be dead because no one will bother bringing new ideas to the table.
