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.

Samsung just copied the iPad/iPhone.

I keep seeing this being asserted and nothing more. Before the iPad came out, anyone person familiar with sci-fi would have had the same idea for a tablet. The only thing that was holding it back was the technology wasn't quite there yet for most of computing's history.
