Latest update on the Samsung vs Apple patent infringement case

Apple-vs-Samsung-lawsuit1

As we all know, Apple and Samsung have been in court for a couple of years now because Apple claims that Samsung has infringed on numerous mobile device patents. The device in question for this one is Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, which we all know is part of Google’s Nexus program. In a nutshell, Apple claims that Samsung has copied the iPhone and demands more than $2 billion in “damages,” while Samsung, on the other hand, claims Apple has infringed on no such thing. After Samsung concluded its defense, it even claimed that Apple themselves has infringed on Samsung’s patents.

Samsung’s main defense is also that the Galaxy Nexus employed Google’s Android OS and that they had nothing to do with the software side of the Galaxy Nexus device. Seems like we’re going to have these kind of court battles for more years to come at this rate, right? If you wish to look more into this trial, hit up the source link for more info and updates. Also, let us know your opinion on this matter, do you think Apple should be taking Google to court instead of Samsung considering it’s their OS that Apple is angry about?

    “Samsung’s main defense is also that the Galaxy Nexus employed Google’s Android OS and that they had nothing to do with the software side of the Galaxy Nexus device.”

    No, but they had much to do with the hardware side, and they are copying Apple both in hardware and software design. And mostly everything else too.

      Copying in hardware? You mean like having a touch screen, speakers, mic, and it’s a rectangle with curved corners? Sorry but Apple didn’t invent the rectangle.

        No, I’m talking about Hardware design. The physical design of the phone. The parts of the phone you can touch!

          That’s still incredibly generic. It would be like Ford patenting a large rectangular boxish shape that people can sit in and has 4 wheels.

            Not at all. Patents are more advanced that that. Also, I’m actually not talking about patents. Samsung have copied the iPhone, both by patents and not.

              I disagree. Guess we’ll just have to agree on that.

              I will always stand by my opinion, but you can think what you want of course.

          What about the Galaxy Nexus did Samsung copy from Apple in your opinion.

          • Escenze

            Nope. I think the Galaxy Nexus was pretty unique.
