Apple announces its first witness in Samsung patent trial which starts Monday
Tomorrow starts the trial of the century between Samsung and Apple. Apple made a filing in court on Sunday which lists its first few witnesses. The first person to be called will be Samsung Telecommunications America strategy chief Justin Denison.  That will be followed by the testimony of an early member of the Apple iPhone team, Chris Stringer.

Apple marketing VP Phil Schiller is scheduled to testify this week

A recognizable name is also expected to be taking the stand this week, and that is Apple's senior VP of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller. After that will come the testimony of three Samsung employees that will be entered into the record  from depositions. The next name on the list is industrial designer Peter Bressler who is an adjunct professor from the University of Pennsylvania. On Friday of this week, Apple will call its iOS team head Scott Forstall to the stand.

As the plaintiff, Apple presents its case first (either that, or it won the coin flip). The Cupertino based firm seeks $2.525 billion from Samsung for infringing on its patents, saying that the Korean manufacturer unjustly enriched itself by this amount. Samsung filed a counterclaim seeking to be paid for its technology allegedly used by Apple without a license. The trial starts Monday with jury selection. Once a jury acceptable to both sides is seated, opening arguments will begin.

Not really (on the start of thermonuclear war). Even if Sammy loses, there are work-arounds for each of the patents Apple is attempting to enforce. The biggest problem for Apple is the existence of Sony and Samsung prior art (prototypes and shipping product (F700)). What is the saying - the patent office grants patents, while the courts determine their validity? This is anything but a sure thing for Apple.

The only problem with that, no one survives a thermonuclear war. Apple should have left well enough alone.

rotten Apple (iCompost) tries to justify wheel-like patents because they are not able to compete any more .....: "Oh, yes, they have been copying us, I saw it, they used some ruler and suddenly THEY DID IT! A rectangle appeared....can you believe that?"

i think that Sammy will lose, the court probably will be in favor of apple,because its a company in their own country and they have to support it.
