On Friday, Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung, claiming that the Samsung Galaxy line is a blatant ripoff of the iPhone and iPad. The 38 page suit goes into detail, showing side by side comparisons of all the ways they feel that Samsung has copied their design. They even show images of the packaging and some icons used by Samsung as part of their case. Apple is also in legal battles with Motorola, Amazon, and Nokia over smartphone and software designs, making this suit against Samsung just one of the many already circling the courts. It is expected that both companies will choose to settle, since going into a long dirty drawn out court fight would have a negative impact over their other business affairs, like the fact that Samsung makes the microchips that Apple uses in its products.
