Apple wants December 6th motions hearing moved up
posted by Alan F. / Sep 01, 2012, 2:51 AM
Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1. Apple says that Samsung's motion should not be heard before its motion.
Both sides have their Rule 50 motions to argue. These are motions heard by the judge, requesting changes in the jury verdict. For Samsung, it is seeking to overturn the jury's decision. For Apple, it will argue that the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 is an Apple iPad look-alike and would like the judge to direct a verdict against Samsung for infringing on Apple's design patents. That would allow Apple to keep the U.S. sales ban on the tablet. That injunction not only blocks Stateside sales of the GALAXY Tab 10.1, but also "any future products that are no more than colorably different," which is why the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1N can't be sold in the States. That tablet was rolled out by Samsung in Germany to get around an injunction in that country. The difference between the two tablets is the metal trim that was added to the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1N.
Additionally, citing Judge Koh's pre-trial decision that the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 infringes on Apple patents, and the words of Circuit Court Judge O'Malley's dissenting opinion that the tablet did infringe on Apple's IP, the iPad manufacturer is seeking a permanent injunction on Samsung's tablet.

Of course I can tell which tablet is which. Look at the Samsung logo plus the screen on the Galaxy tab isn't wasted by just displaying 5 icons per row.

I just wonder if all this will ever stop and we are allowed to just enjoy innovative technology that will make our lives easier. I'm embarrassed for Apple. They are loosing our support as Apple products lovers, bcos if they keep winning, they will not have competitors, and without competitors, there is no one to compete with, which means you dont bring your A game into the field (with your USP), which means less exiting innovations.

How is he a fraud when he is correct it is embarasing that apple keeps getting into lawsuits. He supports apple but dose not want the compition to go away cause it will mean they don't have to work as hard to show up the compition each year. it also tarnishes there public image as well. Apple the great patent troll is that what you want your company to be known as a patatent troll or how about anti competative. i can understand the fact why they are sueing but not how they got some of there patents in the first place such as a patent on rounded edges and swipe to unlock etc.

Nope. I just dislike the way he tries to make his arguments more valid. It is like if I were to say to you that I don't even use Apple products, just to add weight to my comment. I have a reason to believe, he is infact an Android user trying to sneakily hate on Apple.

NGL I am an iPhone owner. NGL I dont like apples practices and business ethics (let alone iOS) I sympathize with SlimSoulja, and commend him on being brave enough to use that as his avatar amongst so many raging Android users.

That is not true. Sure, people interested in technology can differentiate the two, but people who don't give a f**k about tech mostly can't and not because they're stupid, they just see two extremely similar tabs infront of them.

So, what your trying to say is that all tablets are the same? They have large screens, tiny bezels and rectangle designs. Also, those average Joes you refer to, know the difference between Samsung and Apple for sure. They buy a Samsung because they want a Samsung, they buy an Apple because they like fruits.

Apple used that same analogy in court. They blamed the consumers who bought products @ BestBuy who couldn't tell them apart. They (consumer) thought they were buying the others product. I lay blame completely on the sales people and the buyer for not verifying what you A: Want and B: What you are paying for. Consumers are dumb.. They like shiny and mesmerizing without doing their own homework. Its no wonder why most people end up complaining about their choices, they fail to do their homework before their purchase. I can tell them apart easily. Apple uses a 3d effect dock on every iphoney and imaxipad, plus they aren't even the same physical size and the icons give it away

All people in the World must boycot and stop buying Apple is copycat company. Apple is trying to destroy Samsung smartphone business while currently Apple have no new iPhone to sale. Samsung must stop doing business with crazy rotten Apple.

Let's just wait and see how much of the ruling withstands appeal. I wouldn't be surprised to see Judge Koh invalidate a good portion of it. It obvious from her warnings to Apple prior to the end of the trial that she saw merit in some of Samsung's defense, as she thought it would end badly for both sides.

There is a 100+ page book that lets you know who copied who. Samsung even as far as to hire the same girl from apples commercials. Ever seen a Samsung store? Looks very familiar to another store but I just can't put my finger on it... I love my sgs2 as much as my iPhone but Samsung need to work on a different image. Even htc users will tell you that.

How about 4:3 vs. 16:9 (aka the Sammy tablet is taller and not as wide as iPad) form factor? It will be interesting to see how Koh decides the Rule 50 motions. Decisions for Sammy will indicate the judge doesn't agree with the jury verdict, which won't be good for Apple's chances on appeal.

So you think as long as it has the Samsung logo on it, it doesn't infringe anything? So they could literally just take an iPhone, put the Samsung logo on it, and you think it wouldn't be guilty of anything? Brilliant.

Samsung's Tab looks nothing like an iPad. Plus the people have a very nasty habit of displaying the app drawers and they conveniently ignore the Galaxy Tab's home-screen. If that argument were even valid, every tablet in the market looks like an iPad. I suggest you use them both and see for yourself.

Maybe they think everyone is an iDiot and iLliterate in US of A and thus cannot read what is printed on the Samsung tablet and the box that states Samsung Galaxy Tab.
