Legal "The web has been alight these past few weeks with the details of the Apple v. Samsung lawsuit. It's been a unique opportunity to peer behind the curtain of how these two companies operate, as the trial seeks to answer the question: did Samsung copy Apple? But there's actually another question that I think is much more interesting to the future of innovation in the technology industry: regardless of whether the courts say that Samsung copied Apple or not, would we all be better off if we allowed - even encouraged - companies to copy one another?" This is very relevant.

If that were the case, we'd all be buying our iPeds or inPads etc... for $100 from China. You know, the ones that fell from a truck with the iPad hardware and Android or Maemo installed on them...

The above is even one step ahead of 'copying' as it includes actual hardware theft, but I bet you don't know a single person who has one, which kind of scuppers your argument, really.
