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.

You're twisting the truth again. The document did not state "make it look like iPhone". It said "this is where the iPhone look better. Here's some suggestions for making our product better".

You'd think Apple's lawyers would follow up with a document stating which of these suggestions were implemented. For some curious reason, they did not - and neither has anyone else. So, we actually don't know how much of the suggestions were *actually* implemented. Maybe none, maybe all, but probably, somewhere in between. And then, we need to know how many of the implemented suggestions actually copied the iPhone, and how many were different.

"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?
