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.

looks like fosspatents has a list of the patents, trademarks, and "trade dress" that Apple is suing Samsung with.

Interesting to note that Apple has trademarked several basic icons in iOS - guess that means nobody can use similar-looking icons for fear of trademark infringement ;)
