Apple vs Samsung Judge: Apple lawyers ‘smoking crack,’ Samsung’s trial strategy questioned

by: Chris SmithAugust 17, 2012

The U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial, now in its third week of proceedings, is a very interesting source of information related to the mobile ecosystem that we follow closely here at Android Authority. We’ve seen Apple and Samsung make their cases, with each party trying to prove that the other is violating its patents with various products and that any infringement claims against its own products are unfounded.

So far Apple seems to have the edge on Samsung, as the iPhone and iPad maker has been able to submit some interesting evidence that suggests its iOS products were definitely inspirational for Samsung execs, designers and engineers, [...]

Samsung designer says Galaxy Tab 10.1 was in the works before the iPad

by: Chris SmithAugust 15, 2012

Now that Apple has rested its case, Samsung is on the offensive to try to demonstrate to the jury that it didn’t copy the iPhone and iPad when it comes to certain design elements and that it didn’t infringe various Apple patents that cover certain functions also available on some of Samsung’s Android smartphones and tablets.

The task at hand is rather difficult for Samsung especially considering the kind of internal Samsung documents that Apple brought before the jury, including a memo and a very detailed comparison between the iPhone 3GS and the first Galaxy S prototypes.

Both items revealed Samsung’s desire to make more competitive [...]

Samsung claims Apple’s iPad design was stolen, introduces new evidence

by: Andrew GrushAugust 15, 2012
The newest move on Samsung's part is to bring in testimony from Roger Fidler, the head of the digital publishing program at the University of Missouri. Fidler says that he actually began working on a tablet design in 1981, and that Apple had exposure to his ideas and prototypes during the mid-1990s. He added that he was working on a device that would work with just a touchscreen, without the need for a stylus. He even had a working model back in 1994.

by: LucianAugust 15, 2012
Apple roughed the feathers of Samsung last week in the first week of the trial, but last week Samsung went on the offensive, accusing Apple of patent infringement not only against some of their patents, but also against other companies, showing evidence of prior art for the multi-touch technology.

Apple’s suit looks strong but Samsung win still possible

by: Simon HillAugust 14, 2012
As Apple rests, and Judge Koh kicks out the Samsung Galaxy Ace and international versions of the Galaxy S and S II, the focus turns to Samsung. Time to prove that Apple copies too and that many Apple patents should never have been granted.

South Korean courts postpone Apple vs. Samsung verdict

by: Andrew GrushAugust 10, 2012
While most of the attention in the Apple-Samsung patent war is focused on the high-profile case in California, the South Korean media recently anticipated a ruling in their own country over patent infringement. In a turn of events, the court announced that it had decided to hold off announcing the verdict for "procedural reasons." No explanation was given, although the judges involved in the case are more than likely waiting to see what happens in the American proceedings before making their own decision.
