Legal Reactions to Apple's yesterday win are in. Tim Cook: "The lawsuits between Apple and Samsung were about much more than patents or money. They were about values. At Apple, we value originality and innovation and pour our lives into making the best products on earth. [...] We applaud the court for finding Samsung's behavior willful and for sending a loud and clear message that stealing isn't right." Samsung: "Today's verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices. It is unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners, or technology that is being improved every day by Samsung and other companies."

No, Samsung: today's verdict should be viewed as a call for you to move your lazy ass, hire some good interface designer and do something better than poorly copy (*not* stealing, just poorly copy) other companies stuff. Do what Microsoft did with WP7 (they did better than Apple, IMHO). Reinvent the mobile UI. The world really deserves more choice between great products, not half-assed copycats.
