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.

Why would I ever bother to make a product if it were not protected?

there already is a strong movement among producing companies away from patents
simply because without a patent you will always be 1 generation ahead of your competition, and the copycats have to do some nasty reversengineering

What kind of commie state

why the hatered against communism?
