Legal "Samsung's move to drop all requests for injunctions against Apple in Europe may not be enough to escape sanctions from the European Commission over the alleged abuse of its standards essential patents. EC Vice President Joaquin Almunia said during a press conference on Thursday in Brussels that his office will continue with its investigation against Samsung and will release a 'statement of objections' within the coming weeks."

Apple has design patents which can be reasonably easily avoided (look at Nokia, they have no problems)

The top Lumia models are, stylistically, oversized iPod Nanos 6th gen... Nokia is safe from silly Apple lawsuits probably only because it was part of the settlement between them, the one when Apple paid Nokia ~1 billion.

PS. And one would think you'd be the first to point out the similarity of new Nokia styling to that of iPod Nano 6th gen. Apparently not if it doesn't fit your narrative...
