I felt that this whole trial was a farce from day one. There are too many precedents about how things look for that to be anything but a nuisance, red herring or trial run type case.

Look at cars, appliances, other electronics. If one maker decides a fridge with rounded corners sells, and it does, then everyone makes a fridge with rounded corners.

You can only do so much to a hand-held before it isn't. There's a certain size limit. I've overheard a lot of questions to people that had Iphones, and no one EVER mentioned the case. Most seem to hide the case with some kind of protector anyway.
How many form factors can you have, anyway? Motorola tried a square format, I haven't seen the Charm for a while so I guess it was a bust. A triangle? Circle?
Can't imagine those very comfortable to hold.

Now had Apple started a suit over their "Retina" or something like that, the case would have had some merit.

Apple has lured one of Samsung's chip designers - now we might have a legitimate type suit. I'd rather not see one.
