Supreme Court To Hear Apple-Samsung Feud Over iPhone Designs

That's right folks, this case has finally made it to U.S. Supreme Court. Am I the only one that thinks the justices have more important cases to decide than "who had rounded corners first?"

After five years of litigation, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on Tuesday in the bitter patent dispute between the world's two top smartphone manufacturers over the amount Samsung (005930.KS) should pay Apple (AAPL.O) for copying the iPhone's distinctive look. The justices' ruling, due by the end of June, could have a long-term impact for designers and product manufacturers going forward because the Supreme Court, if it agrees with Samsung, could limit the penalties for swiping a patented design.
