No matter who wins in these cases, the lawyers will make out like bandits.
Would be nice to see some kind of consumer benefit from this -- maybe more varied products longer term.
I'm neither an Apple or Samsung booster, though I own devices from both. I'll buy whichever products work well for me.
Apple's lawyers are all on the payroll and get paid the same win or lose.

I also don't believe in living in one eco system, but I do tend to be loyal to brands that consistently work well for me. If you burn me on a product, I will be leery about other products from you. Google burned me bad with the Google TV...then HTC burned me with the Droid Incredible (Android phone). My Acer Iconia is not a very good tablet (IMO, but it does have some good points), but I don't really blame Acer for that. MS burned me for years and years with Windows, but I think most of us were victims there. So far, Google/Asus are doing well with the Nexus 7, even though apps have started FCing on me. JB remains buttery smooth. I like Asus as a company so that is really why I bought the Nexus.

The thing is, companies mimic because they're afraid of risk. That's why you'll see a slew of books or movies of the same ilk at the same time. It's not that no one can think of anything different. It's that people think they'll have a better shot at making a buck. If this billion dollar decision has any possible good, it will show companies that copying carries its own risks.
Now as far as Apple and Samsung,if Samsung blantenly copied Apple's tech and broke copyright infringement than Apple has every right to sue for infringement although I'm with everyone when it comes to healthy competition.

I was reading an article from Seeking Alpha, a financial information website, regarding the Apple v. Samsung litigation in San Jose, California. This article had a chart, Who Is Suing Whom? It is from the Kanazate Group llc. I thought it would help you all keep track.
My company has a crew of in-house counsel, too. When we're involved in any type of lawsuit, the big guns are brought in from outside.
