Apple v/s Samsung: Is it Important?

I hope most of you are aware of the Apple v/s Samsung verdict wherein Apple won a decisive victory against Samsung in the court last week. The jury instructed Samsung to pay a whopping $1.05 billion to Apple for its infringement of design patterns and certain Apple-owned patents. But, what does this mean to us? Is design really that important? The article that I am referring to appeared in the Forbes magazine (online) and is a good read especially if you love technology and have your own viewpoint on this whole Apple-Samsung row.

He talks about design patterns in particular and how the upcoming Audi resembles the design of the Mercedes and the Opel which is similar to the BMW. According to Shaughnessy, design is not invention; it comes from a common pool of creativity. Read this article to decide for yourself. Let’s see what do you think about it.
