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.

So how so you encourage the best and brightest to enter a field where their ideas can be easily copied and their focus cannot sustain a career? The answer is it is not going to happen.


Ah.... yes. The old dilemma of innovators aren't going to innovate is they aren't paid. It's like saying that musicians aren't going to play their instrument if they aren't paid for it...
