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.

So, you think the refrigerator maker company is the company with original ideas

I don't see what them making refrigerators has anything to do with this.

newton, PowerBook, Macintosh, quick take, mac OS, iPod and iPhone is the copy cat?

None of these are original ideas. Good products perhaps but not original ideas.
