Samsung's now claiming the iPhone maker ripped off designs -- not from it, but from Sony Corp. (NYSE: SNE) in building the smartphone. Samsung says a 2006 Business Week article on Sony design is what sparked the idea for the iPhone's look and feel. This argument wouldn't necessarily prove that Apple copied Sony; just that Samsung couldn't have ripped off Apple given its design wasn't original either.
