Legal And just like that, within a matter of days, the jury has reached a verdict in Apple vs. Samsung. The basic gist is simple: Apple's software patents are valid, and many Samsung devices infringe upon them. Apple's iPhone 3G trade dress is valid, and Samsung's Galaxy S line infringes, but other devices did not. Samsung did not infringe Apple's iPad design patent. Apple did not infringe any of Samsung's patents. Apple is awarded a little over $1 billion in damages. Competition lost today, and developers in the United States should really start to get worried - software patents got validated big time today.

I think you make some good points but I don't see this backfiring at all.

To most consumers this is all background noise. Corporation A wins money in court from Corporation B. Whatever.

In a few months it will be:

The new iPads are here! The new iPads are here! I am somebody!

No one gave a shit about Apple factory workers killing themselves. People would rather read about a pig that likes to drink root beer.
