Samsung focuses on Apple's FaceTime as it goes on the offensive in patent trial
posted by Alan F. / Apr 22, 2014, 8:54 AM
Samsung claims that Apple's FaceTime feature seen on the Apple iPhone 4, Apple iPhone 4s and Apple iPhone 5, infringes on a Samsung patent related to the compression of video. This patent was purchased from its inventors in 2011, for $2.2 million.
The second patent that Samsung claims that Apple infringed on, deals with the media gallery app used on the iPhone. Samsung had purchased a patent from Hitachi that covers the "recording and reproduction" of digital images and speeches.
Closing arguments are scheduled for next Monday and the jury could start deliberations that very day. Apple is seeking $2.2 billion from Samsung, claiming infringement on five of its patents.

Sammy wont won. It will be: 1) Judge will say patent has not been infringed. 2) Patent will be invalidated. 3) Vetoed. Sammy may be fined instead for patent trolling maybe.

Samsung - 2 patents...seeks $6 million. Apple - 5 patents....seeks $2.2 billion Samsung claims its patent is used in Face Time....where Apple patents include slide to unlock, auto correct or select? Cant remember now....and 3 others I dont even care to look up. And people wonder why there is hate for Apple.... If you were to add 3 more patents for Samsung...it would still probably come under $20-$30 million for Samsung. I would be willing to bet many, many iPhone users bought an iPhone for Face Time vs slide to unlock....and whatever other patents Apple is suing over. Take a wild guess how this is gonna turn out. ...

The facetime feature makes me laugh......i could make videocalls with my old phone more than 12 years ago and yes it was a Symbian device. When apple indroduced facetime they pretended that it was their invention/innovation haha.......stupid apple.
