57 clone apps?

It's not hard to be original, why bother ripping 90% off something?

Angry Birds and Crush the Castle have the same premise(launch objects at structures with physics), but are entirely and completely different, by example.

I'm kinda glad that this is finally happening.
The one title I find kinda strange is Plant vs. Zombie... What was that? A singular Plant fighting a singular Zombie? Sounds boring as f*ck.

You only have to change something 15% for it to be legally original. I'm interested to see how Apple justified this.

In everything? or just apps? cuz the music world is VERY strict. you get less than 3 three seconds

Creative works. Music is its own ball game in that respect. I'm talking art, prose etc. Not sure where games/apps fit into that but I'd imagine it would be much closer to the stuff I mentioned than music.
