Legal "The web has been alight these past few weeks with the details of the Apple v. Samsung lawsuit. It's been a unique opportunity to peer behind the curtain of how these two companies operate, as the trial seeks to answer the question: did Samsung copy Apple? But there's actually another question that I think is much more interesting to the future of innovation in the technology industry: regardless of whether the courts say that Samsung copied Apple or not, would we all be better off if we allowed - even encouraged - companies to copy one another?" This is very relevant.

"Mayble, I'll start my own blog site, i'll copy the design of osnews.

Actually that should be okay, as long as you leave out OSNews' artworks and branding elements (e.g. OSNews logos and names).

People have been making the I'll-copy-OSNews-and-its-content argument for years, and I've always responded the same: go ahead. Let's see how long you'll last copying every individual article. Let's see how many readers will think you're a dick for doing so.

We mostly link to other people's stuff. It would be insane to prohibit others from doing so.
