Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

tomcat,

"But, at the end of the day, the courts are going to have to decide this one, or it's going to be settled out of court. Can we please stop beating the 'patents are teh 3v1L' drum? It's really getting boring."

That doesn't mean people should not debate it. Unfortunately, if we ignore the problem it enables even more abuse. Every year in europe corps are heavyly lobbying for pro-software patent reform. Too many people with an attitude like you and software patents will become law in europe just like in the US.
