---" Apple isn't upset that other companies are responding to their products and even imitating some features. Apple is, instead, upset that other companies are being pretty downright lazy copying them."---

I'm not sure this proves whether I'm right or wrong. As you have pointed out, this is repeating what Apple Reps have been claiming throughout the tech media presses.

Roe Vs Wade of electronics. Corporate jargon is always fun to listen to. I love to hear companies defend themselves.
Google is not perfect. Samsung is not perfect, nor is any business. Apple is not exempt from the flaws of business.

We can disagree all day. One thing we should NOT disagree on is, Steve Jobs' video taped commentary on Apple's quest to push for the top.

"Good artists copy, great artists steal. Apple has always been shameless in stealing other's great ideas."

What does this say about the hypocrisy Apple is demonstrating in liu of all this litigation? I think we can both agree on the importance of intellectual property, but for Apple to use the words "copy" and "ideas" for litigational purposes, descends the professional eloquence used in corporate language. Especially from one of the richest companies in the world.

I stand by my post. Apple created a new status that they can now sustain and call their own. They need to learn how to handle this success. If Apple can't take the heat, then they need to remove themselves from the kitchen.
