The big fight in the blogosphere is whether the Apple/Samsung battle will harm innovation, or help it. Jim Dalrymple’s piece, “The Innovation Argument,” explains the help side well:
What Apple’s win prohibits Samsung, and others, from doing is blatantly copying Apple’s design. There is nothing in the ruling that says Samsung can’t continue to innovate. There is nothing that says Samsung can’t release as many phones as they do now or that they have to charge more. In fact, this decision should lead to more innovation, not less. If Samsung is forced to stop copying Apple, there is only one option left—innovate.
Absolutely. We should see something like this as early as Christmas.
Or is this not what Jim meant?
