Yes, you can litigate the layout of a store. STØR vs, Ikea! They didn't look alike to me with STØR being better quality. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STØR
from your link: "STØR was acquired by IKEA in 1992".
Well, next info for Wikipedia: "Samsung was acquired by Apple in 2013".

I love the "Apple didn't invent tables" people. So fucking off the rails.
Any reasonable inventor would attempt to patent anything (s)he possibly can. The only question relevant issue is whether that patent is granted, and if so, challenged, and if so, stands.
So your comment is vacuous.
Oooooow that told me.

A striking thing about these kinds of threads is that weird undercurrent that Apple is actually being shitty for withholding their designs. That everything Apple does is right and good and proper and obvious, but that Apple itself is wrong and bad and greedy and pointlessly litigious. Like they're illegitimate squatters on some kind of innovation mine, and trying to hoard the proceeds goes against all notions of justice.
It must be terribly galling for the haters to notice that all this cool stuff has to be tainted by passing through Apple on its way to general access by decent people who would never demean themselves by purchasing "Crapple" products, which of course are for sheep. I wonder if they ever consider that if not for Apple we'd likely all be shopping in Best Buy for button studded shit boxes championed by tech zealot assholes? You know, like it was before Apple remade those markets.

1. Deny that Smasung copied Apple
2. Argue that everybody copies everyone else
3. Argue that Apple didn't invent the (whatever)
They can't help it.
They are all Apple copyists.
What is the problem here?
Was apple patented all store should belong to them ?
Microsoft store is OK. Sony store is OK. But, Samsung store is bad ?
And don't forget Apple store itself is copy of "Sony Style store"
... All store are belong to us!
The difference is, Apple NEEDED a store, Samsung DOESN'T, unless they intend on making even more garbage and need a neat little place to collect it all for the garbage man.
What's the big deal, isn't it all just rectangles!?
You're a really lousy troll, and that just makes me sad to see the trade dying a painful death, all because of people like you having an inability to not fucking suck at everything.
go Apple, this could be another chance for you to sue Samsung... just saying.
