Legal In order to not overwhelm OSNews with even more legal news, I didn't report on the recent developments in Apple v. Samsung until we had some more stuff to consolidate. Well, since the goings been getting good lately there, let's talk about it. Samsung was ordered to hand over a slew of unreleased products and materials to Apple, and now, Samsung, for its part, has demanded that Apple hands over the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 to Samsung. If they exist. This is gettin' good.

I do think Samsung and Android are lazily copycatting... No one has to make something that's just like an iPhone for functionality's sake.

I don't think so.

The LG Prada was winning design awards months before the Iphone was first introduced. The Iphone design is uncannily similar to the Prada. So, if anyone has been copied, it is Apple copying LG.

However, I doubt that Apple copied the Prada design entirely, as most design elements are fairly obvious and minimal with current touchscreen devices -- you have a touchscreen and a bezel. You might have an actual button or two. That's it. That's the whole idea behind touchscreen devices.

So, Samsung is not really copying anyone. It is just designing what is obvious.
