Re: LOL and when they run photos of both side by side That's because Sony didn't wait for Panasonic to design a set that was marketable and then copy the snot out of it including how the guide pages flipped. Samsung even copied the box's color scheme. Samsung is a 2nd run operation, a very valid and common marketing model and they're hugely successful doing it. There is nothing wrong with being a second run company. Virtually all companies are second run. It's low risk and you can fix mistakes made by the first runner. As soon as someone comes to market with a hit product, everyone copies it...close enough to have similar success, but different enough to not get sued. Samsung got a bit too similar and they're changing it a bit...more differentiation. Big deal. If you want a product identical to an iPad, buy an iPad...I think differentiation is good. I don't want every product to look and operate the same. I want to see innovation or changes from second run companies, gives us more options for features and design.
Look at the 4 door coupe concept. Mercedes CLS wasn't the first with this type of design, but once seen as a market and styling success, everyone rolled out their own version like the Audi A7, Porsche Panamera, and VW CC. Some would say those other models are even superior to the CLS. Where they would go afoul is if they copied the grill design, taillight design, wheel design...sure the profile is a bit different, but nearly all the details were identical, they'd be getting sued. But yeah, they all have steering wheels, they all have 4 tires, they all have a very generally similar profile but that is where the similarities end. Every detail is different in these automobiles giving customers choice, lots and lots of choice.

Samsung phones prior to the iPhone looked largely like Blackberries or Microsoft Smartphones, after the iPhone came out, they began looking like iPhones.
