Samsung responds to Appes FUD over public releases.

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

Apple 1

An anonymous reader writes ""Yesterday a big deal was made, both in court and in the press, about Samsung releasing excluded information publicly. The impression was given that Judge Koh was spewing flames, and Samsung was violating judges orders. There was even highly slanted article on slashdot about the incident.

Today Samsung responded. It turns out the information was already available to the public and Samsung was responding to journalists questions about the information.

Perhaps next time the Apple fanboys will wait until all sides respond before they give their Perry-Mason-wannabe unuinformed opinions. Maybe wait till a solid legal site like groklaw, not cnet, reports the story."

Don't assume Apple and Samsung equally Guilty (1)

As Apple said in its opening to the jury - something like "Samsung doesn't deserve to have its patent claims heard because it didn't sue us before we sued them." So who was the aggressor, the instigator? In Apples own words it was Apple. There are real patents to be weighed here, both Samsung and Apple have valid claims. But Apple can't claim the rectangle shape with rounded corners. I have a Compaq IPAQ sitting here in front of me, predating Apple by years. And an Apple Newton. There is no way I, as a designer, would ever have considered in 2007 that Apple would dare to patent such a shape. Innovation is being stifled here. I have the Newton, but I will never buy another Apple product. Does that make me biased. Well, that can be argued, as well :)
