All it takes for evil to flourish is for good people to do nothing. Apple decided that they had to do something. Maybe if someone else had stood up to Samsung years ago, they would have learned their lesson long ago.


Internationally, it's nearly impossible to beat an organized company from stealing trade secrets and mass producing copies.  There's no enforcement and typically consumer electronics have a very short shelf life before things lose their values quickly.

 

For many years Samsung was undercutting Sony's flat panel prices by 30% and force the price of panels to drop so low that most of the Japanese panel makers are out of business or bleeding red. 

 

Samsung was also beating the Japanese in the dumb phone market, undercutting them in Asia.

 

The iPhone was the 1st device that they tried to copy at 1st but couldn't until they got the help from Google.

While it may be difficult, Apple has just given you 1 billion reasons why it's possible if someone wants to make the effort. And this is just the tip of the iceberg - there are quite a few other suits pending against Samsung, as well.
