Samsung systematic copying, shown in their own reports

In the Apple vs. Samsung case, Samsung simply copied and didn't create. See the difference?

Yeah - Samsung designers surrounded themselves with Apple devices and came up with something clearly inspired by them, but maybe slightly better. No one is arguing that Samsung wasn't "inspired" by Apple - but then Apple had been similarly inspired by several other devices.

The fatal flaw of your argument is that Samsung wasn't "inspired" by Apple. Samsung's internal documents and emails clearly showed that Samsung systematically set out to copy Apple on a long, long list of design details. That was damning evidence against them.

These Samsung documents were basically the smoking gun that doomed Samsung.
