Apple’s $1 billion patent win against Samsung: first thoughts

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 25, 2012
In light of the court's decision, and the points presented by both Apple and Samsung, what clearly comes to light is the role of patents in innovation, and the extent to which businesses can take liberties at existing intellectual property and work these to their own goals. We weigh in with our thoughts, with the focus of whether the verdict can result in better innovation for Android and the smartphone industry in the long run.

Samsung opens Apple-like store in Sydney, coincidentally almost next to an Apple retail store

by: Chris SmithAugust 24, 2012

It doesn’t really help your case against Apple – in which you argue that you don’t just copy/follow the iPhone maker’s lead in whatever it’s doing – if you’re going to open your own Samsung store that looks very much like an Apple store very close to an Apple store.

But that’s what happened in Sydney, where Samsung unveiled its own store in which consumers can walk in and interact with its smart devices, from Smart TVs to computers to tablets and smartphones, with the obvious emphasis on the last two kinds of products.

Then again, if you’re familiar with Steve Jobs and his obsession for opening Apple retail stores – [...]

South Korean court rules that Samsung did not copy the iPhone

by: Gary SimsAugust 24, 2012

Trying to keep track of who is suing who in the mobile industry is hard enough. But trying to keep track of which countries the suits are being filed in, is enough to make your head hurt. Currently Apple is in a legal battle with most of the major Android OEMs including HTC, Samsung and Motorola (aka Google). The biggest battle is with Samsung where injunctions have been filed in Australia and in Europe (specifically in Germany and the Netherlands) and where Apple has had some measure of success in blocking the sales of a variety of Samsung devices. On top of this, Apple and Samsung are battling it out in South Korea and of course in the [...]

Apple wants to prevent real competition with such lawsuits, Samsung says in closing argument

by: Chris SmithAugust 21, 2012

Once Apple made its last stand in front of the jury earlier today, it was time for Samsung’s lawyers to step up to the plate and deliver their closing arguments, and it was Charles Verhoeven the attorney chosen for the task at hand.

And if you liked what you saw in Apple’s closing arguments then you’ll find Samsung’s grand finale a bit boring, as the company tried to go after certain Apple witnesses and dismantle their testimonies in order to make its case one more time, that it didn’t copy Apple, rather than focusing more on its own allegations that it’s Apple that infringed Samsung patents.

Competition in the market place

Samsung was iPhone’s biggest fan and copied it, says Apple in closing argument

by: Chris SmithAugust 21, 2012

After four weeks of fierce fighting in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung case, we have reached the closing arguments phase that’s taking place today in Judge Lucy Koh’s court. After that, the jury will have to decide the fate of Apple and Samsung, after deliberating on each party’s patent claims and filling in the 20-page verdict form that looks like a complex math test.

Apple started the closing arguments session, with Samsung coming up next – after that, each party will have time to counter some of the opposition’s claims as presented today.

The Verge covered live both Apple’s and Samsung’s closing arguments, and we’re going to take a look [...]

Samsung vs. Apple: Peace talks have failed

by: nathanAugust 21, 2012
The best news we could give you about the latest developments in the ongoing Samsung-Apple trial is: It's almost over. The CEO's from both companies have met but have not yielded anything worthwhile to present to the court. The court-mandated meeting was a valiant effort but nonetheless, closing arguments start tomorrow.

Apple won’t divorce Samsung anytime soon, and here’s why!

by: Mike AndriciAugust 21, 2012
While it may look like Samsung has more ways of overcoming any possible divorce issue, I’m willing to bet that neither Apple or Samsung will stop playing nice outside the courtroom for at least another year or so.

Galaxy Nexus ‘minuscule’ compared to iPhone sales – Samsung defense against Apple’s copy claims

by: Chris SmithAugust 20, 2012

In addition to the main U.S. Apple vs Samsung case that we’re following closely these days, there are other patent-based battles between the two giants – in total there are over 50 cases spread across four continents.

Today Bloomberg informs us on a different U.S. legal predicament between Apple and Samsung, this one related to a Galaxy Nexus sales ban that was recently obtained by Apple in the USA, only to be stayed on second appeal by Samsung pending Apple’s appeal.

Apple has made its case in the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, where it claimed again that the Galaxy Nexus copied the iPhone:

The two sides are having this epic conversation today, via the telephone, and plan to have their lawyers report to the U.S. District Judge about the outcome.
