Look at the likes on the YouTube videos,
Copycats are going to be served right, patents are ment to protect good companies
that create innovation.
It is engraved in the US Constitution.
This lawsuit is only been followed by geeks..The normal person on the street does not care or know about this lawsuit.People will be drawn to what ever they wish to buy even if allthey want is a 10GBP talk and text phone..
Even i dont care about this copying malarky who cares just keep delivering better and better smartfones every year..I mean no matter what anyone says the judge decides ..They should just share their patents or make a small charge per unit sold..As to copying a stupid rectangle with a button,,get a life.

Apple COPIED a lot of ideas for the iPhone from Android:
When Apple introduced its new iOS 5 software last year, it was full of features ripped straight from Android. In case you forgot, we collected them all right here.
Notifications appear at a bar at the top
This is perhaps the most blatant copy. Android notifications have appeared in the top bar of the OS since the beginning. It wasn't until last year that Apple finally added it to the iPhone.
Android phones have been able to sync wirelessly with the help of some third-party apps. Apple wouldn't allow such apps in the App Store, so it took until last year for iPhone users to enjoy that feature.
Android Honeycomb for tablets had tabbed browsing when it first launched on Motorola's Xoom tablet. Plus a bunch of other alternative browsers for iPhone or iPad allowed the same thing. Apple finally added tabs to Safari for iPhone last year.
New split keyboard
Android users have been able to customize their keyboard configuration thanks to some clever developers. Now Apple allows for a customized split keyboard on iPad that makes typing in portrait mode a lot easier.
Open apps from the lock screen
Since iOS 5 displays notifications on the lock screen,you can swipe them to unlock the phone directly into the app. This is nothing new for Android users who have HTC phones. HTC's Sense skin will allow you to open your favorite apps directly from the lock screen.
Over the air updates
Almost all Android phones are able to receive software updates over the air without syncing to a computer. Apple used to require you to sync your iPhone to iTunes if wanted its update. iOS 5 is the first version of iOS that allows you to receive software updates over the air.
6 things iPhone 5 must have:

Until the verdict watch this and have fun:
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2012They cost less because they are a plastic copyAccording to Mr. Webster, copy means something that was reproduced from the original, a clone, an imitation, a carbon copy. Does Samsung phones look exactly like Apple iPhone? IPhone has glass and metal, Samsung has polycarbonate plastic and gorilla glass, iPhone has 3.5" screen, Samsung has 4.8" screen. Put them side by side, you have twisted mind if you say they look the same. OS wise? They even look different. The word COPY is deeply rooted in your brain that you might get sick if you don't say it at least once a day.
Ironically, iPhone looks very much a copy of Sony Walkman or LG prada.
The Flash, 10 Aug 2012It's Apple that works with companies to get technology and ideas then destroy them in court an... morePlease note that Apple is not suing Sony or Nokia bacause they did not copy, if you do not like Apple IPhone you can buy Nokia Windows or Sony Android as they are fare competition.
About the big war between apple and samsung. im in the middle. i feel for apple because they stole a similar idea but i feel like they overreacted. i mean samsung didnt steal,they just used parts of apples idea. i mean apple and samsung phones arent alike. and if apple wins this then apple will be the only type of smartphone to pick from,but it is hard to see apple going down.
