Chart shows Apple's case in a nutshell; Samsung designer says she did not copy Apple's icons
A chart produced in court on Monday by Apple shows which of Samsung's devices infringe on each specific utility or design patent and trade dress. It is an interesting graphic look at Apple's case. After the chart was displayed in court, Judge Lucy Koh dropped three models from the claims against Samsun's U.S. subsidiaries. As we told you on Monday, the international versions of the Samsung Galaxy S, Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy Ace are now only part of Apple's claim against Samsung's Korean parent.

Samsung designed Jeeyuen Wang testified that she did not copy Apple's icons for the Samsung Galaxy S

Samsung designed Jeeyuen Wang testified that she did not copy Apple's icons for the Samsung Galaxy S

Meanwhile, Samsung is now presenting its case for the second day and  designer Jeeyuen Wang is on the stand, using an interpreter to testify. Wang designed the icons for the Galaxy line of products and told the jury that she did not copy Apple when designing them. She added that she had considered using the design of a cell phone or a smartphone for the phone icon, but decided on a traditional phone because it seemed to be more easily recognized by users.

Wang had started working at Samsung as an intern and is the first person from Samsung's Korean operations to take the stand. Trying to show the court that other companies besides Apple are obsessive about design, she told the court how hundreds of designers from around the world had worked on the design of the Samsung Galaxy S. Wang testified that during this time period, she slept only 2 to 3 hours a night. In the TMI department, she told the jury that she had just given birth during that time period but couldn't breastfeed regularly because of her work load.

that's not just a korean thing. That happens a lot in america too. Dont get too high and mighty. Many of your "higher ups" and leads work extreme hrs. I used to clock 100 hrs a week running a business. I opened a new build and averaged 3-4 hrs of sleep a night for the first month or so and the rest was at the location to get it up, running, employees hired and trained, inspections, ect. You do what needs to be done to get the product out on time.

Yes, because the testimony of an employee of the company on trial is MUCH more convincing than the treasure trove of internal documents that state that the iPhone is the model for the company's phones after 2007.

Do the documents show that the iPhone is the "model" for their phones or their "competition?" I bet Apple doesn't have any documents on any other company. That whole pull down notification thing.......coincidence.

Ok.....dont act like testimony isnt important. Some cases are won and lost based on testimony at times.

She had a baby but couldn't breast feed because she was working on the Galaxy S. If that isn't dedication, I don't know what is.

Using psychology to produce results. Sickening. This is one way how criminals get away with crimes and crimes get unpunished.

I think this is more of emotional link to how much effort went into designing the device. A true copy cat wouldn't need to have needed to dedicate that much time invested.

Let's hope that justice will prevail and the yellow brand will get the punishment it deserves.

BOth samsun and apple long look almost similar for me. Nothing different just that samsung has 3 capative touch button while Apple only has one.

Now Samsung must cut the life supports, stop supplying components and parts for rotten Apple until all lawsuits and trials are drop.

Apple didn't lost any cents, Apple made $100 billions by used Samsung components and parts.

"Now Samsung must cut the life supports, stop supplying components and parts for rotten Apple until all lawsuits and trials are drop."

I'm pretty sure that Samsung can't do that because they have made agreement and if Samsung will not comply agreement, Samsung will have to pay forfeit.

"Apple didn't lost any cents, Apple made $100 billions by used Samsung components and parts."

Agree.

Apple has already dropped Samsung for sharp, I think. Chip wise, not yet.

Keep showing your ignorance. First, they cant. Second, they need Apple much more than you think!

the first part is very true. they are bound by contracts. Also they keep signing new ones.. TOGETHER.

Second part is not true. Apple needs SAMSUNG much more than you think. They had the opportunity to get away from samsung and chose not to. No one else could supply them with what they needed when they needed it. You want to see an iphone with major supply issues? Let them switch from samsung. TMSC cant even handle its current S4 orders which are a FRACTION of the orders apple gets from Samsung for its A4/5/5x processors.

Samsung would just sell the open inventory to other manufacturers. They've already increased factories and production to increase supply to ship. So far they've been running at max production and have only had enough to sell to ZTE. Which company WOULDNT want an Exynos processor? hmm?
