Actually, Motorola had a patent for this on cell phones. That's why you see old Motorola cell phones with the end/power key on the left side. If my memory serves me correctly, LG owned the patent for the end key on the right side. Nokia largely avoided this by having their power button on the top of the phone.

I have yet to see a valid argument on how it is possible to use force to prevent someone else from copying an idea that is freely available. The whole idea of patent and copyright is just nutty.
