Can we also include the numerous outstanding cases Samsung have brought against Apple to add a bit of context? Both these major manufacturers are as bad as each other when it comes to suing each other and I do have to laugh at the consumers who feel they have to pick a side in order to make their product experience a little more fulfilling. I couldn't care less what these guys do in court as long as I have the choice to buy a product I enjoy using.

Yep, same old litigation. It really makes no difference who sues who, or for what, the consumer ends up paying thw price. Apple is looking a bit desperate though by including the S3, S4, and Note series carte blanche.
