Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

You've just said that WP7 had "fast Camera launching from lockscreen" that "worked while the phone is actually locked by using the camera button". ICS doesn't have that second part, it has a Sense-like camera shortcut. So it follows ICS did not copy it from WP7. Plus, Android had custom lock screens for ages. It was possible to start camera from lock screen for quite a long time.
