    Well, they've already patented shapes and colors. I'm sure their patents for things like "using electricity" and "communicating information" are in the works.

    To encourage originality from other manufacturers. It's rather obvious they are directly copying everything Apple does. Wouldn't someone trying to steal all your ideas and become you be annoying? Apple is simply protecting their property and ideas, as well as the signature style of their brand. I would do the same thing. If somebody copied my music and tried to make money off of it without giving me what I deserve, I would sue the living **** out of them (and probably beat them
    Down) I guess You would just sit back and watch others get rich off of your efforts, right?

    Not only did you misread the patent as stated in the first comment, you also failed to understand the meaning behind Tim Cook's quote:

    “Now, you see the industry at large trying to copy it in some way, but they'll find that it is not so easy."

    Says nothing about taking legal action against anyone. He was referring to the engineering feat that was required to produce the macbook air. He was talking about how it is hard to cram a powerful computer into a tiny footprint, not that it was going to be "legally arduous" for competitors to continue to copy the MBA.....
