I completely agree with your assessment. This law suit will decrease poaching anyway. Companies like Apple will bring more and more of their work in house instead of partnering with other companies who are secretly planning to compete with them in every sector. This way they don't have to worry about providing a partner who is planning to compete with access to key employees.
When a company who has been proven to copy Apple's products and fined in other countries for planting false information about competitors to gain the upper hand, has a marketing plan that is focused entirely on beating a company that according to the media, had already lost to Samsung it telling.

I disagree. Many of the advancements of tech has come from partnerships between honorable people. Google gained a lot from their Apple partnership, they were also given access to employees that they would not have had otherwise. If this was a non partner company I could see the problem.

That's not how they make their Billions.
