Koh already rules against Samsung; objection to video on patents overruled
On Saturday, we told you about Samsung's objection to a video made for jurors called "How patents work." The video, which was produced to help members of a jury understand the complex world of patent law, contained images of certain Apple devices. During this portion of the video, the narrator talks about how the disclosure of a patent could "inspire new inventions." Samsung's objection was that the placement of Apple's devices on the video "strongly suggests that Apple's products are innovative and patentable."

Now, on the eve of the second patent trial between Samsung and Apple, Judge Lucy Koh has overruled Samsung's objection of the video. The Korean manufacturer argued that the video would be "highly prejudicial" since it would show Apple's devices on a video about patents. Apple, on the other hand, wants the jury to see the 17 minute clip. During the first trial, the jurors saw a similar video, but it was so dated that it probably was created before Apple was a household name.

The jury hasn't been selected, and already Sammy is 0-1 on objections.
