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.

Court cases aren't about if someone did or didn't do something, but if what they did is illegal and can this be proven beyond reasonable doubt.

Samsung had loads of documents where they planned on making their products look more like Apple's, even Google objected to this. Anyone can see where Samsung got their inspiration, but the question is if it's illegal or not.

"Most" of the court cases haven't gone to trial yet so I have no idea how you think they've already lost most of them.

You do understand that preliminary injunctions are just that, preliminary?

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!
