Legal Recently, the ITC ruled in favour of Samsung, issuing an exclusion order against certain Apple products, barring them from being sold in the US. Several people have called upon president Obama to step in and overrule the decision (e.g. this guy) - however, not only would this set a very bad precedent for non-US companies, it would also simply be incredibly unfair if you actually look at the ITC ruling itself. Because of this, it is quite unlikely that Obama will step in.

Remember, Nokia and Google (motorola) are the ones who started this war by suing Apple. Apple's not the aggressor.

Further, Apple actually introduced a slate of very innovative features with the iPhone and is using the patent system correctly.

Meanwhile, Google and Samsung are trying to use FRAND patents to defend their criminal copying of the iPhone's inventions.

If there is justice in the patent system, before long, google will be a wholely owned subsidiary of Apple. (Samsung is too big for the judgement to be that large, but they should be out of the phone business completely.)

Alas, the patent system is broken- it doesn't protect innovation, which is why google and samsung et. al. think they can get away with stealing and then pretending like what's stolen isn't actually property.
