You can't steal and copy sexy either. You've got to earn it. A lesson lost in Samsung and other wannabes.

Actually, I bet you can patent sexy. There are several "sexy" high-end cars and if their designs were copied as much as Samsung copied Apple's products, you can bet there would be major lawsuits.

That’s “trade dress.” Apple’s been there, done that.
