Samsung steals from Apple

Samsung has admitted to stealing Apple's intellectual property. The company on Sunday said that it has updated and revised the icons used in its latest handset model "Skin," which used work from both Apple and Microsoft, according to The Korea Times: "The electronics giant admitted plagiarizing designs of the handset's graphic user interface. Many graphic designers and other Internet users on various Web communities [...] over the last two weeks have accused the firm of stealing the designs. The new handset, which began selling here in late April, has an identical graphic icon with Apple's iMac PC which is composed of a ruled notepad and a pen lying on it. Samsung also copied other icons from Microsoft, such as a pile of three yellow sticky notes, and blue and green, round-shaped men that represent MSN Messenger."
