Legal This is probably not entirely surprising. The European Commission has announced that it is investigating both Apple and Samsung because they may have breached antitrust rules with regard to patents used as standard in the mobile phone industry - otherwise known as FRAND patents. While the EC states it's investigating both Samsung and Apple, it's likely the investigation focusses on Samsung.

The Honda Jazz and Mitsubishi Colt are blatant copies of the Mercedes A Class. The Lexus I series are copies of 3 series BMWs.

No one gets sued in the car industry for copying designs. They swap IP readily. They only sue over trademarks.
