Lets assume people copy Apple verbatim

Lets assume people copy things from Apple verbatim. Tony Swash, Hiev, others: What do you think should happen to Apple when they copy things from other people? You all want to see Samsung punished (and maybe rightfully so). So what should the punishment be for Apple? I mean, lets look at all the "things" they have stolen:

1. They used Nokia IP for "years" without a license

1b. They still have not paid a license fee to Samsung for FRAND IP, which Samsung is guaranteed to get.

2. They basically ripped off Kobfabulator

3. Apple copied notifications, Easy photo embedding, priority inboxes,.... quite a few things from Android

4. the clock interface from swiss rail

5. Heres a list of things they copied from Windows:

Where does it end? Or will you finally agree that everyone uses the best attributes they know of when they design anything. To do otherwise is to intentionally create a bad product. Apple uses plenty of things they didn't create. Its time to give up the lawsuits and start making better products.
