    Default Apple v. Samsung, who copied who? The court battle begins.

    http://www.shawconnect.ca/NewsArticl...ads/story.aspx

    Pretty big stakes. 2.5Billion payout demand by Apple for copyright infringement. Samsung making similar demands in counter-suit. iOS v. Android. Discuss.

    Apple. There has to be something more specific to the suit.

    He said that even though the case will be decided by 10 jurors, the judge has the authority to overrule their decision if she thinks they got it wrong.
    Wait what. Why even bother with the jury, then?

    Huge waste of time and money . I did not read the article, but from my previous understanding of the issue, it is based on generic design ideas (ie. big screen, home button, etc...). I may be wrong on that though.

    Maybe Apple should stop being so greedy, this lawsuit only hurts their reputation, and the design conflicts (as I understand them) are not why people buy Apple products, therefore not hurting their current stronghold on the market.

    ^^ That's what I thought too. They are disputing the overall design characteristics of the device itself, not the OS. Seems like a silly thing, there's only so many ways you can make a tablet or phone. Samsung, according to the article, is making the claim that Apple stole the design idea for the iPhone from Sony, who was making bar phones long before Apple jumped into the market. And Apple is claiming that Samsung is copying their designs for their phones. Almost seems childish. I wonder if Jobs had anything to do with this, or if the new CEO is searching for a new money stream?

    Apple really needs to start stepping up their products instead of spending all their time in the court room. The original Iphone was amazing, every single version after that has been a joke in terms of forward momentum.

    25% of the parts in an IPhone are made by Samsung. Apple would not even have an IPhone if it wasn't for Samsung.

    Don't get me wrong apple makes some very nice overpriced tech but the thinking that you can patent every single consumer product on the market is getting old.

    According to the bio, before he died Jobs swore he would spend his last breath and every last penny of Apple's money to destroy Android via constant lawsuits.

    He ran out of breaths, but Apple's still got lots of cash to throw at this.

    In reality it's the patent system that is broken that even allows companies to patent certain things that are viewed as universal. Apple is simply just backing something that the patent office allowed them to have in the first place. If the patent system was fixed, then we wouldn't have this problem.

    Yes their parts are made by Samsung Semiconductor, a separate division/company. Samsung mobile has to do the same and bid for parts with Samsung Semiconductor, just as Apple does.

    Base on Apple's theory, HP should sue Apple for huge amount of $ too.

    I can just see this now....

    "Kia sued for copying Ford's circular tire design."
    "Lays sued by Old Dutch for producing a potato-shaped chip."
    "Apple sued by IBM for developing a personal computer."

    The possibilities are endless....

    Surprised no one here is pro apple. The thing is this was apples strategy all along, they patented the crap out of the iphone and now are leveraging the patent system to muscle out the competition, all the while making LOTS of enemies along the way.

    It will be interesting to see how this pans out.

    If there were patents on those, I'm sure they would of. Only reason this is getting attention is because Apple is doing so well, and some judges like the attention. Companies are somewhat obligated to protect their patents, if they don't, then why even have patents. Patent system is broken, and this is nothing but companies doing what they should do. After all, these are publicly traded companies and need to give results to share holders. There's also other lawsuits among other handset makers, yet not much attention is on that.

    Here's an excellent article written by an actual IP lawyer:
