What Google and Samsung should do, is make their products highly customizable. Allow the user to design their own product. Want rounded corners instead of sharp ones? There you go. Want a black border around your screen? No problem. Want an aluminum case? Want some fruit depicted on the back of your device? Etc. That way, they avoid litigation, and give the users exactly what they want. Everybody happy, (except maybe Apple, who wants to give us all the same hamburger, like McDonald's does.)
Sure, and Samsung could claim to be a sovereign citizen. They could then send Apple a letter, informing them that reading the letter constitutes the agreement of a contract whereby Apple will pay Samsung $10,000,000 in gold coins and Infowars Dollars.*
