A Lawsuit a Day, Keeps Competitors At Bay

When did Apple become the Man?
Apple has always been protective about it's copyright. Some of us remember their Interface Wars with HP and Microsoft in the early 1990s. But they have been smart about it. They have been protective of their copyright but generally shared their innovation. They popularized 3.5 inch Floppy Drives, Ethernet,  Laser printers, Firewire to name a few.
But their lawsuit against Motorola revealed in their injunction on Samsung's Galaxy Tab smacks of fear of competition. Is Apple so insecure of their post-Jobs era that it will anything to milk the most out what they have now? Apple is respected for it's style and design, quality and innovation. They can always manufacture two of them. But are they running out the third?
