Samsung attorney says Apple doesn't own sexy

0. phoneArena 16 Nov 2013, 10:26 posted on

During the recent re-trial between Apple and Samsung, being held because of the original jury's confusing damages award, Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller told Judge Lucy Koh that he was "quite shocked" when he saw the Samsung Galaxy S. Not only did Schiller think to himself that Samsung had copied the Apple iPhone, he also thought that it would cause consumers to "question our innovation and design skills in a way that people never used to"...

HTC was the main copycat of apple, why didn't apple do anything to it? Apple doesn't feel comfortable with samsung being above it

fingerprint scanner, HTC to produce gold phones, touch screen software for clicking on phone numbers in documents from the iPhone. those are for now but in the past they copied iPhone's user interface, underlying architecture and hardware.

Apple copied the fingerprint scanner idea from Motorola. The gold phone from HTC wasn't from HTC, it was a third party gold coating it, they've been doing it for years.

That fingerprint scanner was lack out way before the iPhone was released. The Gold HTC was real gold for an award as gift. The HTC interface is not where close to apple. Dude you really trying very hard for this one.

I don't think you realize that Apple, Htc, Microsoft, Nokia, ect. Have patent deals in place. This is why none of these companies are suing each other. Apple reached out to Samsung with similar deals, but Samsung rejected deal. They were playing hard ball. In a lot of ways it worked out for them. Yes, they will have to come out of pocket for it, but they have become very successful in the mobile space because of it.

If that were true, which is clearly not, then why would apple and nokia be so mad about Samsung releasing confidential pricing to senior managers to bargain for a better deal? Also, IIRC, Jobs was quoted as saying they wouldn't pay "1 penny" for samsungs patent. Also, Apple did sue HTC too. They later reached a licensing agreement. Apple didn't want to negotiate from the start with Android OEMs because "Jobs" felt some imaginary work was stolen. They had a suit against almost all major Android OEM's at one point.

Nokia and MS could leverage more against Apple than HTC could. HTC essentially signed the agreements with Apple in order to stay in business, they couldn't keep up with the amount of lawsuits like Samsung can. It also hurts HTC that they don't manufacture anything that Apple needs, quite a bit different than Samsung, who makes components for a lot of Apple's products.

Thats simply not true. Apples "reaching out " consisted of offering them 1/10 of one penny per device for actual tech of Samsungs, while demanding $20 per device from Samsung for shapes and patterns. Thats not a serious offer, and in fact the ITC found that Apple was never negotiating in good faith and were simply holding Samsung up.

i believe that's the whole point of this trial at the moment, samsung has already confessed. apple wants samsung to pay $380 million in damages and samsung is saying they should pay $52 million.

Samsung's attorney Bill Price to the jury,

"There's no question Samsung infringed those five patents. So what should Samsung pay? $52 million."

Whether the patent is infringed or not is determine by the jury and the court has determined they has errors in the ways they determine infringement.

Competition is a never ending cycle of product renewal only Apple stick with the same design year by year.

Apple John Ivy is a lazy person that do not want to spent too much time making newer design like the rest of the world engineer or product designer so whatever they called themselves.

I am sick of macbook design. Its what 5 years since we see anything new.

Let's put it like that.
At the end Apple will pay Samsung for patents, more that Samsung will pay to Apple for their iBS ,
And that's fair.
Because Samsung owns real patents.

The funny thing is that Apple startet it. LOL They are so helpless today, that even Obama cant do much for them.

So Jobs was right, Apple should never have built a smaller tablet. That would be irony at its best if they lost a huge chunk of money due to Samsung proving they copied their Tab.

And yet another nugget in the ongoing saga of Apple created the world...

Nice find. I await someone to chime in and say Apple had designs for the iPad in 1965.

Not running their own OS, and was using tech that was pc compatible that was not infringing on patents of other companies.

It is one thing to make things smaller out of smaller parts that are already on the market and you have patent rights to.

It is another to copy and not pay.

Apple has entitlement issues and the good old us of a and the courts are letting them get away with it. Sad times we live in.

Stop being greedy ! Each one has his share of the market so stop hating and focus on satisfying our wants/needs in the most profitable way. Hope that the fight for the highest market share & reputation stops as it's useless ,besides it'll do u no good fighting with rivals as it'll just give a bad impression especially when when fighting on meaningless bs.
