Legal I stopped following all the patent trolling in the mobile industry months ago because, you know, I have a life, but apparently some big ruling just got handed down in the United States: using three software patents, a patent troll from Cupertino has been given an injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, imposing a ban on the device. This patent trolling has to stop, blah, blah, we've all been here before. If you need me, I'll be over there on the sofa remembering the good old days when Cupertino was famous for great products, instead of infamous for its patent troll.

It copied the fast Camera launching from lockscreen before that.

Eh... Camera launching from lock-screen is a copy from Sense, not WP7.

A lot of the Holo theme is directly inspired from Windows Phone.

The theme? Hardly. Some apps bear resemblance, but not the theme.

Eh.. No. Windows Phone had it in 2010. Plus, it worked while the phone is actually locked by using the camera button.

Different than Sense lockscreen shortcuts.

Well, then Android didn't copy from WP7, because it has a Sense-like shortcut.
