All copycat OS or phones of iOS and Apple respectively should be condemned
Debate Rounds (3)
Before that, the smartphone is terrible, IBM Simon.  In fact, I do not know until I have searched although I know that button based phones will be used in the era without the concept of iOS/iPhone.
In 2008, Android 1.0 was released, with the same concept: touch-screen. Features in the phone are also changed to icons, exactly like the iOS. As for phone layout, as a (noob) consumer, there are no difference. 
Worse, Android was declared to be free and open-source by Google. This affects Apple's sales a lot.
1) Apple Didn't Release the First Smartphone
My opponent is incorrect in asserting that apple is the original that is being copied, when in fact they are not the first or original smart phone. In 1999, the Japanese firm NTT DoCoMo released the first smartphones. My opponent argues however that before the iphone all other smartphones were lower quality and thus do not count, however quality does not negate the fact that they existed.
2) Androids Free and Open Source Model Promotes a Free Market
Overall we see that androids free market allows for the growth of intellectual property. This promotes a free market and eliminates apple's ability to act as a monopolistic power. This benefits Democracy and allows for the development of society in a positive manner.
Remember my opponent must prove that other smartphones copy and should be condemned.
However, I would like to rebuke that the argument is an accusation against me, saying that I have claimed Apple to be the first smartphone in the world.
Hence, I am not obliged to respond to him on that matter.
As for the free market, I also agree with @Preston. I do not condemn but also encourage.
Nonetheless, I do not accept force as it will discourage the creative entrepreneurs from starting their own business, and soon economy collapses for insufficient capitalists.
This is a huge blow against the nations that support capitalism, especially Western countries like United States, United Kingdom, etc,.
I would like to ask all seating judges: Do you think of free trade if your ideas are copied and distributed, worse for free and open-source? Will you rest in peace?
"However, I would like to rebuke that the argument is an accusation against me, saying that I have claimed Apple to be the first smartphone in the world.
Hence, I am not obliged to respond to him on that matter."
My opponent is required to address this matter, If he/she Concedes this then they recognise that no one is copying apple at all but instead an alternative companies phone, i push this matter.
"As for the free market, I also agree with @Preston. I do not condemn but also encourage."
My opponent concedes this argument, meaning condemning an alternative company should not happen. This means he cannot fulfil the resolution and thus you vote neg.
My opponent still has not fulfilled the BOP or provided any sources to refute my argumentation, my sources are from professional organizations while his sources are majorly based on editable wikipedia entries, thus mine are superior and you vote neg
Here are my simplified arguments:
Lastly, my sources (esp. Wikipedia) are corrected by the public, thus, more reliable than those editors/official. Note that the sources are outdated too.
You will be voting neg for the following reasons:
1) Apple is not the original and thus there are no copycat smartphones.
Again as shown, apple is not the original thus there are no copycats, this shows the resolution holds no actual weight, this is uncontested and thus sides with neg.
The Free Market is harmed if we remove products that came after apples iphone, and it doesnt matter if android draws from apple's business.
Ultimately you vote for con because pro has not proven the resolution. He has not shown why we should be condemning these phones, he has not shown impacts, or warrant for resolution, and since it was his responsibility to do so you will vote neg, Thankyou.

Reasons for voting decision: Preston said it better than I could "Ultimately you vote for con because pro has not proven the resolution. He has not shown why we should be condemning these phones, he has not shown impacts, or warrant for resolution, and since it was his responsibility to do so you will vote neg." Pro did not, in any way, affirm the resolution.
