Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

We all have opinions about whether a particular technology is novel and inventive -- and whether a particular lawsuit is junk or valid. But, at the end of the day, the courts are going to have to decide this one, or it's going to be settled out of court. Can we please stop beating the "patents are teh 3v1L" drum? It's really getting boring.
