Stealing is still unethical and wrong. You can't rationalize it away. It may not be illegal now, but give it time. Shady business practices will catch up to them eventually.
Smart Parts is a perfect example. They manipulated the system to gain an advantage by stealing IP and then suing people into submission because their pockets weren't as deep. It caught up with them, it will catch up to Apple.
As far as the products kicking *** bro, that's simply a matter of opinion. I find them polished, but boring. Middle of the road even. Definitely not "kick ***". Though that's my opinion.
"Good artists copy, Great artists steal"
That quote is the biggest bunch of BS. I'd never seen that before, I'd certainly never support that company now after seeing that.
