Apple vs Samsung implications

No doubt Samsung is guilty of wholescale IP & trade-dress thievery and will be not only forced to pay Apple $5 billion but fined a huge amount as well. Just look at the general direction things are going. Not only Samsung will have to give up a huge amount of cash, but Microsoft is being fined $7 billion by the EU very soon. So while Apple's record cashpile keeps going up, up, up it's biggest competitors are taking massive cash HITS.
