Legality of copying design/features?

2

We're all familiar with patent cases that seem to crop up frequently. There seems to be significant development involved with The Verge (as hinted on the podcast with stream branching). Is it possible we'll ever see a The Verge (SBNation) versus [some other site] case? Or is it possible the same innovating features found on this site could easily end up on other sites?
