So, to summarise your post:

Apple builds on others != stealing.

Others build on Apple = stealing.

No:

Apple, and probably a number others too, take existing ideas and create products the way they think they should be done.

Most, like Samsung, create me-too products. Less risky, but also more boring.

Your opinion is not fact. Apple has lost most court cases, so not even the courts are with you on that one. That's where the error in your thinking lies.

I'll give you an example of the disingenuous nature of Apple's "me-too" claims.

They showed a picture of iPhone with rows and columns of pretty icons. This is the home screen of the iPhone.

Then they showed a picture of a Samsung App-drawer, so it looked more like the Apple home screen.

Ooh, it's a me-too thing! But the sameless part is that this cute rows and columns of icons - it's the Palm home screen! That goes back to the 90's.

Shameless!

You are rather poor at 'summarizing' in this instance. Try reading the dude's post again.....slowly this time.
