Samsung copied Apple says Apple expert witness

The expert witness also ripped apart Samsung's claim that a prior patent for the design proved Prior Art. Bressler said that there were too many differences between the two patents for Samsung to make that claim. Bressler had more than a dozen different variations of the Samsung Galaxy S in front of him and told the jury that all of them infringed on the design patents held by Apple covering the design for the face of the iPhone. Bressler also testified that the Samsung GALAXY Note and the Samsung GALAXY Tab both infringed on design patents for the Apple iPad and said the biggest difference between the three devices is the color used on the back of each model.
The witness ended up telling the jury that Samsung's analysis is incorrect as he held to his premise that consumers get the same impressions looking at Apple's products and the devices from the Samsung Galaxy line. Next up will be former Apple designer Susan Kare, famous for designing the "Happy Mac" logo. Ms. Kare is expected to testify that the UI on the Apple iPhone is a unique solution to the problem of building a smartphone UI and that Samsung copied it for their own phones.

The Galaxy Note infringes on iPad design patents? Are you fu--ing kidding me? You'd have to be stupid to fall for that!

Alright, the Original Galaxy S Smartphone did have some similar resemblances with the Apple iPhone, but to say that the future generations of the Galaxy S line copies Apple is absurd. It's like a grandson being punished by his grandfather's enemies 50 years later. . . . and the UI is quite different from iOS.

These are apple's witnesses who would be coached on what say and not to say. Samsung will have their own. This isn't anything unusual.or definitive. The cross-examination seems well done, pointing out Samsung's point on its strategy to invalidate apple's overly broad patents

How is that stupid? Samsung copied many of Apple's designs and patents. It was apparently enough for Google to step in and warn Samsung not to do it any further.

Apple steals ideas, since no one can have a monoploy on ideas. There lies the defect in the android fanboy camp. That is why we have patents -- to build better mousetraps. If The idea is a mousetrap, then anyone can file new patents on mousetraps.

Yes, but if the idea existed prior or is obvious, then the patent is invalid. Therein lies the defect in the iOS fanboy camp. We now know that not only Samsung, but Sony were working on similar designs. LG already had one in the public.So not only did the rounded corner rectangle with minimal button exist prior, it was obvious evolution of the market, based on the fact that so many were already working on it.

This witness is obviously paid by Apple.

Nothing more than a biased claim. You can't prove anything about the witness being paid.

May be he was not paid but he says stupid things, how can you accuse someone on using a shape( rectangle ) and colour (black) that people has been using for thousands of years. The US patent office is stupid to give patent for such things. Read the case about patent of using turmeric and neem in medicine.

Per the testimony of the witness under oath, he is being paid $400 per hour for his testimony, and has so far made about $75K. Here's a link:http://www.siliconvalley.com/c

But what about the Samsung, Galaxy Spica, The Behold, The pixon, The Wave, how about the GSM phones, its just too much focus on the current Galaxy phones.

Even the current Galaxy S3 is looking more like one of it's classic designs, curved, not uniformed shaped home button. The only phone that actually looks remotely like the iPhone is the first Galaxy S, other than that Apple just being whiny that people are actually buying Samsung's products instead of theirs.
