    So any other company that wants to use Saphire glass is copying Apple who has yet to even announce they are using Saphire glass on an iphone. Even if they do WTF, who cares who else uses it. Its not exclusive to Apple, no one is copying anyone, if not then Apple copied Motorola on the fingerprint sensor on a smartphone. Its called technology and its a race to innovate and innovation comes from inspiration.

      Yes Samsung copies in a prolific way , its fine who ever uses sapphire glass but the thing is that as soon as apple does something someone at Samsung hits the panic button and says we have to release a product based on apple product rumors example ( Galaxy gear ). Also your talking about the Motorola Atrix that was released in 2011, apple released their finger scanner phone in 2013 and Samsung surprise surprise released their finger scanner phone the S5 right after Apple, so you can see Samsung has a long history of copying, in 2009 legal battles involve against Dyson the vacuum makers , for copying their models check it out , also RIM sued Samsung for copying its phones with the Samsung Blackjack ,Sure when a company invents or uses a popular feature others follow that’s fine but Samsung is a fast copier more prolific than any other company including Apple, and i have a Galaxy S4 i love tech not companies but in this case Samsung doesn’t have a good reputation.

      This week Samsung clearly stated they are in the business of “following trends”. So, the idea that this is their strategy is no longer something for speculation. Naturally, mimicking innovation requires a legal strategy due to the inevitable patent suits. Samsung has correctly calculated profits from copying outweigh costs of R&D and litigation combined.

      Samsung knows buyers don’t care where the innovation starts, so long as it results in less cash flying out of their wallets. Moreover, regardless of why they are in court, Samsung knows that all news is good news: anyone forcing litigation against Samsung is doing Samsung a favour. In the public eye this validates Samsung as a major contender and allows Samsung the opportunity to “defend” it’s action is court, blurring the realities of what they say in public, which is that they copy what’s popular among their competitors.
