Legal "The 2010 report, translated from Korean, goes feature by feature, evaluating how Samsung's phone stacks up against the iPhone. Authored by Samsung's product engineering team, the document evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward and in most cases its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone." Pretty damning. We still need to know a few things: how many of these were actually implemented? How common are these types of comparisons (i.e., does Apple have them)? Are these protected by patents and the like? And, but that's largely irrelevant and mostly of interest to me because I'm a translator myself, who translated the document, and how well has he or she done the job?

I see your point, but there needs to be a balance, and without some boundaries everyone would just copy the guy next door. I'm not an expert on patents or trade dress, but on the later I think Apple have some valid concerns. It will be interesting to see how this pans out. My gutt tells me Samsung will lose this round, at it will go to the next court. You'll be writing about this for another 3-4 years I think!
