The point of law is that its is supposed to be a system that punishes those whom are acting in a morally wrong way and rewards those who are morally right.

You can't objectively look at Android or the Galaxy Nexus and say that's a copy of iOS or the iPhone. In fact, if anything is being ripped off, it's Apple ripping off Android's notification menu.
The system has clearly failed. Look at patent trolls, (like those in Oracle and Microsoft) or the BS lawsuits from dying companies (Kodak, Nokia, etc). It wastes billion's in taxpayer money, hurts consumers, drives down innovation, among others problems.
The entire system should be thrown out.
