The BBC’s Newsnight dug up a great piece of footage from an interview with Steve Jobs from back in the ’90s, for a segment on tonight’s show about the impact of the Apple v Samsung judgment:

“I mean, Picasso had a saying. He said ‘Good artists copy. Great artists steal.’ And we have, y’know, always been shameless about stealing great ideas.”

Original footage, in context, below.
