    By now we've all seen it. We all know the verdict...and we all seem to largely disagree with it. I want try and get a full discussion going and see what we as group can find.

    So, let's start with looking at everything that was found against Samsung. The following is a list of the Patent/Design Patent/Trade Dress along with a list of all devices that were found "Yes - For Apple". This should make looking things up far easier.

    Now, the first thing that stuck out to me very fast was the "iPhone Trade Dress".

    So, what is Trade Dress?

    Basically, it's the "image" of a product. I say McDonalds, you think of the double golden arches, red and yellow stripes, etc. It's the defining image of a product. The actual section of law relating to Trade Dress can be found: 15 USC
