    There are two likely responses when the verdict comes out:   If Apple wins, then anybody who disagrees with the verdict will be villified. If Apple loses, then anybody who agrees with the verdict will be villified.
    Apple is shameless about stealing great ideas.
    If you are saying that each player acts in its own self-interest, then few would disagree.   If you are saying that doing so is somehow bad, more people might disagree.
    Nope.  Never had occasion to pay much attention to who is using what name.  Next time around, that will be a factor however.
    You need to learn that the language which is acceptable here is defined by its context.    Given certain speakers and certain subject matter, anything goes.
