Certain evidence in Apple-Samsung case was skewed toward Apple

make their own designs with conviction and confidence," and to “make designs with faces that are creative and diverse.” Furthermore, the Samsung executive reminds his team to focus on the screen as a way to differentiate itself from other manufacturers. "Our biggest asset is our screen," said Shin "it is very important that we make screen size bigger."
The jury never got to hear the full statement from Shin, only those parts that Apple wanted them to hear. Maybe it wouldn't have mattered anyway, not based on what we subsequently learned was going on during deliberations. If Samsung does win a new trial, you can be sure that they won't make the same mistakes twice.

Exactly. I walked into a Samsung store and bought the SGS3 because I thought it was an iPhone. :)

Yeah Samsung made a knock-off that actually performs better than the original iPhone! How dare they make it better, more functional and simply more awesome than the original! Apple should sue Samsung for pure awesomeness :)

Yup-per. Didn't Sammy negotiate the rights to build (and sell) versions of the iPhone with screen sizes larger than 4 inches? It was all part of the deal where Sammy agreed to supply Apple with the chipset for the iToys.

I can understand that an average consumer might think that an iPhone was mistaken for a Samsung phone although they are very different in most design cues but seeing the Samsung logo and still thinking that it was an iPhone and purchasing it was really a foolish

they werent allowed to call on Shin or present certain very obvious pieces of evidence, but when this quote was read to the jury, samsung's lawyers should have still stood up and called BS. They had the trial stacked against them unfairly, but they also made some pretty big bonehead mistakes for a law firm representing such a big client.

park hit the nail on the head...OWWW!! Yeah, having a judge oversee this trial - one that has ties to APPLE - that in itself is grounds for a re-trial. What is wrong with our system of justice for overlooking something so obvious such as this?
