Patent war? What’s going on?

Charles Colton, the English writer; once said that “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery“.

Keeping that in mind you’d think Apple would be very pleased by a few of Samsung‘s recent product designs.

However, what with the flurry of lawsuits and metaphorical sucker punches being traded between both parties in all of the various lawsuits with regard to patent and IP infringements, it makes you think the otherwise.

 

In my view, big corporations suing each other over patents and designs is very disheartening, as it narrows choices down for the consumer.

Nobody wants that, for reasons that are quite barefaced.

Howbeit, when you look at WHY Apple is suing Samsung, it elicits interest.

 

Knavery and flattery are blood relations” — Abraham Lincoln

 

Let’s get right down to business.

Beginning with a few mild ones.

 

 

Now it gets a little too much….

 This is concerning the iPod Touch:

 

 

 

 

Makes me wonder. “What were they thinking?”

 

 

This one really gets you:

Now, the following isn’t manufactured by Samsung, it’s a third party product.

But still….I mean look at it for yourself.

 

Now that that’s out of the way, getting to the stuff that Apple sued Samsung for.

And this is just a small portion of the evidence.

Really, Samsung?

 

“Hey, new iPhone? Oh wait.”

 

And you know something is amiss when Google specifically asked Samsung to not copy Apple. 

 

STILL not convinced?

Samsung wanted their custom UI TouchWiz to  look a lot more like iOS: Here. 
No?
An article on The Verge.

The 132 page document with the evidence.

 

There  it is, folks.

My point is NOT “Down with Samsung, they’re unoriginal!”

My point is:

Keep it clean, be original.

It isn’t that difficult to make something look very different.

 

Well, that’s what I think.

If you think I’m mistaken, please feel free to tell me in the comments.

 

Looking forward to sharing more of my idiosyncrasies with you in the next post.
