So Apple is suing Samsung for $3B on account of a bunch of patents that allegedly protect the design and utility of the iPhone and iPad.
Of course Samsung copied Apple in numerous ways. Heck, Samsung's TouchWiz GUI seemed like the only Android skin specifically designed to mimick iOS's app drawer (i.e., paginated horizontal scrolling vs. Android's sock vertical scroll).
And, yes, the Galaxy S line had a passing resemblance to the iPhone 3 series (same with iPad and Galaxy Tab 10.1). And, true, Android users clearly benefited by these "inspired rip offs" that Samsung cribbed from Apple.
