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.

Your right... Apple II, Mac, iMac, ipod, iphone, os1..9 & X... Apple is one of the most innovative large corporations. While Apple did not invent these they innovated them and made them marketable where others failed. They vastly changed to consumer electronics landscape on many different occasions.

PS. Apple is one of the most sued companies in the US! Much more then they sue others!
