UI and Trade Dress Patents Samsung is including in the lawsuit

Sure, it's easy to accuse Samsung of fighting superior hardware design and implementation with cramming a bunch of half-baked-soon-to-be-abandoned features to inflate their spec sheet with ugly UI elements in a ridiculously tacky fake-metal shell, but Samsung actually has an extensive UI and trade dress library including:

-Making a 'bloop' sound every time the screen is tapped
-"Nature Inspired" widgets that are able to show an actual fake landscape over part of your screen
-Dynamic user interface able to display blue gradients, purple gradients, magenta gradients, *and* fake leather simultaneously.
Speaking of 'half baked and soon to be abandoned features' do you mean things like MobileMe, Ping, iTunes Match or iCloud?
Fortunately for Samsung the suit has nothing to do with bullshit "UI and Trade Dress". Unless something has drastically changed since the last time I read up on the case. LTE patents are tech patents that are far different than 'wah, their phone loo...

This is abuse of the legal system

Drop ALL of their cases, and make them pay double for what they cost tax payers in every city, county and court room. Upon that, they shall each donate 1 billion dollars to a charity of a juries choosing.

Then of course, they're banned from frivolous legal actions.
Unfortunately, you can't really ban people from being able to sue....would be nice if you could....

Make It Stop!!!

As a taxpayer, I am tired of this bickering between these two. OF COURSE there are going to be similarities in the basic function of these devices...

Why can't this be settled reasonably? Please tell me that whoever the loser is has to pay ALL court cost INSTEAD of the taxpayer footing the bill.

I understand that there needs to be a certain level of protection for trade and proprietary design but why cant this be settled diplomatically and expeditiously?
The taxpayer does not foot the bill for this.
