The Great Swiss Clock Ripoff

Doesn't Apple have any creative clock makers on staff? Must they resort to copying someone else's trademarked design without permission?

Quote:
The hits keep coming for Apple's iOS 6. Amidst the backlash over its lackluster Apple Maps app, it appears that Cupertino is also drawing fire for the new clock app on the iPad.

As first noted by MacRumors, the Swiss Federal Railway (SBB) told one of the country's newspapers, Tages-Anzeiger, that the new clock icon within iOS 6 on the iPad (left) violates the railway's clock trademark.

Well, it *is* a beautiful clock!

But to Apples defense, the arms are shorter in their version!

I don't know how anyone could mistake the two, the only on the left is clearly not as cool.

I can't see that Apple can or will do much except settle the case by paying compensation and either pay a licensing fee or remove that face from their clock application.

Is that so? Better remove it and make some original stuff! What's the use of the money they got from Samsung? They must put some nice guy in the research and development dept.

Don't you people understand? It's only copying violation when other people do it to Apple. When Apple does it it's simply inspiration.

Perhaps Apple should have invested in a book instead of designers?
