Judge doesn’t punish Samsung for press leak in Apple patent case, warns against any other “theatrics or sideshows”

by: Chris SmithAugust 3, 2012

The U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial resumed its proceedings today, but before the two parties could go forward with the testimonies of Apple’s top executives Phil Shiller and Scott Forstall, Judge Lucy Koh had to rule on some of the motions filed by the two companies in the previous days.

One of them, filed by Apple, asked the Judge to punish Samsung by ending the lawsuit in Apple’s favor. Samsung’s counsel decided earlier this week to leak certain pieces of evidence that Judge Koh did not allow to be used in the trial to the media. This measure infuriated the Judge and prompted her to officially ask an explanation for what [...]

iPhone, iPad sales numbers to be unveiled in court by Samsung, Apple doesn’t want that

by: Chris SmithAugust 3, 2012

It’s a new day today, which means we’re going to turn a new page in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial. The case, scheduled to go forward today with the testimonies of some Apple’s prominent figures including Phil Shiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Scott Forstall, Apple’s Senior Vice President of iOS Software, may reveal actual iPhone, iPad and iPod touch numbers.

Samsung wants to make public such numbers when cross examining Shiller – he has already testified for Apple a few days ago – but Apple would like the court to stop the Android device maker from sharing such data with the public:

According to [...]

HTC forecasts another bad quarter, as China remains its last growing market

by: Bogdan PetrovanAugust 3, 2012

To get an idea of how the smartphone business is these days, consider that Samsung is one of the few manufacturers that had positive figures to show to shareholders in the second quarter of 2012. Sony yesterday announced losses, in spite of growing revenues in the mobile business, while LG slipped backed in the red, after the good performance from the first quarter of 2012. Even Apple somehow disappointed investors by missing estimates in Q2 and shipping fewer iPhone than expected.

HTC announced a puny $250 million in profit in the second quarter, a massive 57% lower than in the previous three months. Taiwanese execs blamed the lackluster performance of the company on [...]

Samsung not allowed to use “2001: A Space Odyssey” prior art argument during Apple trial

by: Chris SmithAugust 2, 2012

We’re back with another interesting detail from the U.S. Apple vs Samsung legal battle after having told you that Apple filed a motion requesting Judge Lucy Koh, who’s presiding over the case to punish Samsung for alleged misconduct (sharing rejected evidence from the case with the media,) by declaring Apple the winner.

While we wait to see how Judge Koh rules on Apple’s recent request – the company is also interested in having the jury know that Samsung has destroyed evidence that could have been useful in the case – we have one more decision from the same Judge that favors Apple.

Judge Koh ruled that Samsung can’t use one of the [...]

Apple wants Samsung to lose U.S. trial as punishment for leak of inadmissible evidence

by: Chris SmithAugust 2, 2012

The U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial started a few days ago with jury selection followed by the opening statements of both Apple and Samsung, with each party explaining the jury why it should win this major patent dispute for the mobile world.

But then something unexpected happened, Samsung’s counsel decided to leak to the press certain documents that the Judge presiding over the case found to be inadmissible as evidence in this trial. The move angered Judge Lucy Koh, who unsurprisingly demanded for an official explanation from the Android device maker.

Samsung’s lead counsel issued a statement explaining the move, and acknowledging he [...]

Canalys: Android gets 68% of global smartphone shipments, 81% in China, in Q2 2012

by: LucianAugust 2, 2012

While things may not be looking so good in the US market for Android, dropping 5% in market share compared to the last quarter, Canalys is reporting that Android has a very healthy global growth rate, reaching 68% in Q2 2012. This is compared to a year ago when Android only had 47% of the global market. Apple dropped from 18.9% a year ago to 16.4% globally in Q2 of this year.

What’s even more impressive is that Android grew in China from 70% in Q1 to 81% in Q2, which once again shows that pretty much everywhere outside North America people are more interested in buying affordable unlocked devices, than in paying expensive monthly fees for subsidized [...]

Apple wants the jury to know that Samsung destroyed evidence

by: Chris SmithAugust 1, 2012

The U.S. Apple vs Samsung legal odyssey continues today with new developments in one of the most important patent-based cases in the world right now. It’s not just a fight between titans, between business partners, between closed and open ecosystems, but also a battle that could have decisive consequences on the future of the mobile ecosystem.

The trial started on Monday with jury selection, and we saw yesterday the opening arguments from both Apple and Samsung. Each party is accusing the other of violating its patents, with Apple claiming Samsung has copied the look and feel of its iPhone and iPad and with Samsung saying that Apple is [...]

Samsung lead lawyer explains decision to share rejected evidence, anger judge

by: Chris SmithAugust 1, 2012

Earlier today we showed you a few images that came directly from the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial. Only they’re not allowed in court as evidence for Samsung, and since Samsung’s counsel can’t use them to defend against Apple claims, it decided to leak them to the media.

The decision angered Judge Lucy Koh, who is presiding over the case and who wanted to know exactly how this happened. And when a judge asks, you can only answer, which is what John Quinn, Samsung’s lead counsel did.

The attorney filled a personal declaration today in which he explained that he is the one that authorized the release of the Samsung evidence. Here are [...]

Samsung releases rejected trial evidence, infuriates Judge Koh

by: Bogdan PetrovanAugust 1, 2012

The Apple vs Samsung roadside show… uh, trial has commenced on Monday and, as expected, every day brings fresh insight into the two rival’s strategies and inner working. Much of the evidence submitted to the court is public, which means that we are in for a real feast when it comes to information that was, until now, closely guarded.

While usually journalists have to scour through troves of legal documents to get to the juicy details, yesterday Samsung handed information directly to the media. Here’s Samsung statement, accompanied by a series of slides.

The Judge’s exclusion of evidence on independent creation meant that even though Apple was allowed to [...]
