Shinto, Buddhism, Ikebana, Tea Ceremony, no one thinks these are simulation of Chinese, Toyota, Honda, Made in Japanese company electronic gadgets, You name anything. Japan Inc. market in the World.

It was a retrial of the same 2012 win by Apple in US court. The judge cut the fine to $600 million after she found out the jury made a mistake calculating the penalty amount. Apple appealed and the US jury once again, puts most of the penalty amount that the judge cut, back on again.

And Toshiko, if Samsung is guilty of copy catting, then Sony is too, with their Xperia line of phones. All of the Android phones are considered copycats by Apple. The only reason why Apple didn't go after Sony is because, Sony's sales are so pittyfully low, it wasn't worth Apple's time.

I never understood this poor sense of loyalty towards a company charging its customers tons of money for an product. If Samsung copied some parts and improved them, then it's nothing but a win-win for the consumers. But some people have a strong sense of belonging, whether it's a religion or a product. Just the fact that you are so happy to see one company losing just confirms this.

toshiko: "The Japanese tradition. Shinto, Buddhism, Ikebana, Tea Ceremony,"

Ummm... not to burst your bubble, but Buddhism is not something created 'inside and outside' by Japan, it is a religion brought here. Likewise, if you actually think Japan doesn't outside its parts manufacturing to poorer Asian nations, why does Panasonic have factories in the Philippines and other places? Sony is flailing, Sharp is more or less done, Sanyo's gone, and Panasonic has already lost globally to Samsung. And as chucky says, Xperia is a copy of older models of smart phones and tablets.

And how have they improved them? Bigger buttons?

Bigger buttons? Ha ha very witty indeed old chap! No bigger screens (you know like the ones Apple will introduce soon), Multi taking( Apple will introduce this in ios10), customizable keyboards(not all Apple owners have delicate tiny fingers) Etc etc. I know from reading your earlier statements that you have some sales function at Apple, but peeing on the opposition just makes you look petty.

@smithoutjaoan: Why those Japanese companies are not sued? Sony did not copy in 1960;s. Morita studied American industry and Sony *Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo ,then) did not copy. They created new way It was in late 1950. If they can't copy, they pay patent fees and copyright fees. About Japan Inc open in other countries, they don';t sue their own head companies. Buddhism in Japan, Singon-shu,Shin-shu, Jodo Honshu, Nichiren Shum Nichiren shoshu, and did not copy Chinese, They just created their own.

One has to wonder if Apple is quickly becoming the "Evil Empire" it sought to defeat through it's own success. And indeed, whether they, through their closed-shop innovation, have added to the Global employment decline. Innovation through improvement, is certainly being stifled by the Lawyers when it comes to Technology these days, and Apple is clearly on top of this.

I thought you were a reasonable person until I read this. I think you just showed your true colours.

"it's nothing but a win-win for the consumers."

Infringement committed for commercial advantage or financial gain is criminal. It's a serious offence needed to be stopped because, if allowed, nobody will spend money, time, effort to invent or develop anything, then there won't be progress.
