    If I'm not mistaken, it's still illegal to take someone else's idea, make it yours and profit from it. I do realize most if not all the manufacturers do it. There's an old saying down here- knowing it and proving it are two different things. Apple probably wouldn't be litigating this unless they felt assured of the outcome, or at least felt this would curb future behavior.

    If it's patented. Then yes, it's illegal. Sad thing is, IMO. This case has done nothing to curb what Samsung does and will continue to do. For me, all profits should be paid. Maybe not to Apple. 10% should be paid to Apple then charities should get the rest. But it should hurt the company that committed the crime. As it stands it doesn't. Samsung made much more off their Galaxy devices than the 750 million they'll have to pay. They'll just do it again. They've done it with all their products. Not just smartphones and tablets.

    But I thought the total amount included legal fees. Looks like apple is being a little greedy. They will get theirs soon enough.<br><br>Maybe now Samsung and others will get with the program about patenting their features, etc. Because Apple patents everything, and is being granted those vague patents. Samsung needs to fire their patent teams for not catching those patents during the device development.

    That's what I was thinking as well, I believe that is the norm generally speaking
