Wired News has a good read (“Apple Defends its Blueberry Bush“) about Apple’s lawsuit against companies shipping iMac clones. Very interesting read for intellectual property lawyers and those wondering how Apple or the defendants will defend their respective designs:

The string of suits shows Apple is willing to fight to protect its blueberry patch. The question now is, will it win?

Apple and the accused companies aren’t talking, but legal experts say the question isn’t easily answered.

“Whether Apple will succeed or not is very hard to judge in advance,” said Jim Sobieraj, an intellectual property lawyer for Brinks Hofer Gilson & Lione in Chicago. “You can’t say that it’s a no-brainer whether they’ll win or lose.”
