Legal I'm guessing Apple is getting desperate, since its software patent lawsuits aren't doing particularly well. Moving on from software and design patents, the company is now suing Samsung over... Patents for mobile phone and tablet cases (more at The Verge). I think Apple has more offensive lawsuits than products now, so technically, "patent maker" is more accurate than "gadget maker" or "device maker". Fun times.

Does Apple have any substantial evidence that something non trivial and unique was copied? No. The vast majority of these cases are about trivial, obvious and natural things in design, or altogether software patents, which aren't working as intended at all as known. When Apple does produce a reasonable hardware patent infringement case - that's a different story.
