For three years, Apple and Samsung have clashed on a scale almost unprecedented in business history, their legal war costing more than a billion dollars and spanning four continents.

Once you brush off the apple pie that spontaneously erupts from your monitor and get over the “Asian Samsung bad, American Apple good!”-mentality, this article has some very decent stuff in it. Worth the read.
