Apple Computer, Inc. v. Microsoft Corporation, 35 F.3d 1435 (9th Cir. 1994).

Paul Freiberger and Michael Swaine, "Computer: A History Of The
Information Machine" by William Aspray and Martin Campbell-Kelly, and
"Gates: How Microsoft's Mogul Reinvented an Industry--and Made Himself
the Richest Man in America" by Stephen Manes and Paul Andrews.

This reminds me of the story Andy Hertzfeld tells about what Bill
Gates said after Steve Jobs accused Microsoft of stealing the Mac's
UI: "Well, Steve, I think there's more than one way of looking at it.
I think it's more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and
I broke into his house to steal the TV set and found out that you had
already stolen it."
