    Those that applaud the decision may one day rue the day. Less competition means less innovation and higher prices.

    Innovation means not violating someone elses intellectual property.

    Took a real genious to think up a rectanglular device with rounded corners.
    I totally agree with the suit against Samsung for blatantly stealing the ios icons.

    Although I do agree with Apple suing Samsung, I not agree with Apple suing the Chinese company because they have a leaf in their logo. (They're a food company).

    It will be interesting to see what the hearing in U.S. courts this October will bring with this type of precedent. I believe that a while back, I read that Samsung was the one that had initiated court proceedings against Apple in the hope that it could win in suits abroad and influence the courts here in the U.S. Things seem to have turned out quite the opposite.

    While I don't think that there is anything new about tablets, the German courts seem to have foud too many similarities.

    In an interesting twist, German retailers are being allowed to sell the Tab 10.1, restock them as they sell as long as the resupply does not come from the German division of Samsung .

    I don't agree, it will mean less watering down by companies who are more profit based than quality based.

    The wife bought a £60 android tablet as an ebook, side by side to the ipad2 it's appearance is extremely simular but smaller, and tbh works acceptably well for the money.

    But why have Appe not jumped on this maker?

    You honestly believe apple dont put profit over quality? the products are well built and function as they are meant to but as a company I dont have any illusion as to how they operate. its evident in the way that they dripfeed usually minor upgrades into thier products, thier means of manufacture and the reluctance for meaningful price reductions or sales.

    I think the Gene Roddenberry estate (or even the zombie man himself) should sue apple for blatantly stealing the iPad design and function from him. That would be a laugh

    All big successful companies work on bug profits, nothing wring in that as it secures longevity, if you feel that is wrong then with respects your very nieve

    Soz hit send by accident,

    I'm not into a keyboard war but sponsoring freedom if opinions.

    Not that I'm a mega trading force but I do run a small business and have for near 30 years. The costs of incorporating even a ready made product into your portfolio are extreme, costs of introduce inovations like the Ipad2 are phenomenal.

    If we want! (cough), demand such excellence from Apple then we should show grace at the price's charged - or imho go android ;).

    Even when it is small potatoes, All companies have to vigorously protect their intellectual property. With dealing with small companies, if they do not, they will lose standing in the courts for not protecting their rights. I do not agree with how they handle some of their battles, but with consummer electronics, if you do not protect your products, you can be toast. Look how Google has learn the hard way that they need as many patents as they can get their hands on to protect theirselves.

    And if you will notice, the iOS on the iPhone was copied like crazy for Android and WebOS. Whatever else might be said about it, Windows 8 is about the only OS that is not a copy of Apple.
