WHOA people, the UN peace keepers aren't in at the moment.
I could understand that Samsung COULD have copied the Iphone IF it looked identical and had an apple logo on the back but it doesn't. How can you have a copy if it doesn't copy the original.
Imagine using a photocopier to do a copy only to find that what it prints out isn't the same as the original, would you still say it is a copy even if it different.
Why on Earth they included the Galaxy S3? Are they fools?
apple has taken right step. Quality of apple products are very high compared to other brands. employees working under apple, they gather and make their own idea, innovation or whatever you say . . . . .
what if sumone copy your work and put it in own product.
Its not easy to win lawsuit, samsung mobiles which infringement lawsuit of apple has to go indeph test and are inspected sharply to get proved. Cant samsung use their own ideas, designs ?
I know multitouch & pinch to zoom are in many mobiles, but every mobiles has their code and way it works.
but how these things work in samsung matches to apple(you will only know with indepth inspection of mobiles which were done in court).
ya samsung was the first to start this war and it seem that they are totally sourrended by that war. i have never hated any brand, i have always loved all but this couple of years back, cell phone is on the war. for the profit that means by cheat. if Apple wanted to do this lawsuit that, they could have done at the same time samsung had started to copy it but they didnot and samsung started to this war and hoping it to finish it as soon as possible.
USA mobiles industry is based on PROFITS before PEOPLE.. most usa consumers often complain BITTERLY publically in media .. TIME apple inc. show true leadership UPFRONT.
This is down right redicalous, I think everyone should boycott apple products from now on to show the consumer has a power to tell apple to stick it
judges must act for larger interests of consumers who are merely suffering spectators in apple patents wars .. time to bang heads -judges -please -- corporates must be held to account ..
This is totally idiotic of Apple , and a bad way to Eliminate competition on their part. They want to earn easy money on their home turf , as their products are loosing their market foothold to affordable and feature rich Android . I am not a fanboy , but such cheap tactics in the face of competition should be discouraged by consumers for any company(not only apple).
Apple is lost without the great Steve Jobs!
AnonD-39337, 01 Sep 2012yea, and you should be banned from existence because you COPY your parents genes.then why not its happening. nobody is stopping samsung from banning apple, if they have anything on their side. I know on the consumer point, people are hurt by apple's decision, for this apple should not be blammed rather this has happened because of Samsung, they have distracted the people by their copied ones and now consumers are getting affected for Samsung's act. see poor german car manufacturers, they are very much affected by korean brands like kia and hyundai. i stand by my word that all korean brands/designs are copied, nothing created by their own... i too have an motorola atrix 2 , the android one and also the iphone, but iphone rocksssssss
I hope that apple will not ask all apple frute producers allover the worled for mony becouse they are producing a product with same name and perhaps they will stop the red and green apple becouse of using the colors owned by the stupide apple realy sucks hehe

Apple eat your crap!
I wish we knew for sure what percentage of Apple/Iphone users are really fed up with how Apple are behaving in this constant court case fiasco. I think those who are blinkered in life will continue to think they can't do anything wrong no matter what they day.
Man...seriously, know what you're talking about before embarrassing yourself and do some research. You need to stop believing everything a marketing dept tells you.
Where to begin.....
- siri - svoice: svoice based on vlingo which was on Samsung phones years before siri (so wonder where apple got the idea to buy something similar?)
- multitouch : LG Prada and Nokia well before apple
- shake : app developers started this idea
- icons : Nokia, when colour screens first came out in 90's, well before touch screens
- rectangular with rounder corners : ummm.... just about every mobile phone ever invented! Seriously, t honk about it...
- touchscreen : don't even want to dignify this with an answer except to say touch screens are older then you are, and around years before even laptops were invented.
- home botton : I won't dignify this with an answer
- memory choices (16,32,64 GB storage choices) : this is memory size, based on technology development by science and computer memory manufacturers like...oh! Samsung! Enforced worldwide technology choice that Apple and everyone has to follow.
dropbox - icloud : firstly dropbox is Google not Samsung. Second it is a way to store and sync all your files, not just music, pics, etc..
background page : mobile's have had customizable backgrounds since colour screens started on phones.
water wave : wtf ?
screen lock : is as old as the mobile phone
And by the way, I'm not a Samsung fan. I value all tech objectively and use what I find is best for me at the time. I respect Apple (Steve Jobs) for the vision of being able to combine all this tech and ideas INVENTED and DEVELOPED by OTHERS and put it everyone's hands in a easy to use way.
However others have done similar before. And now others are raising the stakes beyond Apples vision ... shock horror! Oh, wait a minute...isn't that called innovation?
Once upon a time IBM was the only PC choice.
