    Apple vs. Samsung Quick Summary of New Developments for August 3rd


    We thought rather than give a lengthy and detailed description of every single Apple vs. Samsung patent war event in their trial, we would give you some brief summaries of what is new (and interesting) in the saga.

    First, as a follow-up to the story from yesterday, Apple had the most ridiculous and draconian request in order to punish Samsung for leaking evidence to the public. They basically asked the judge to immediately declare them the victors and give them everything they wanted. Here's a quote from the Apple lawyers,

    “Apple requests that the Court issue sanctions granting judgment that Apple’s asserted phone design patent claims are valid and infringed by Samsung.”
    Second, Judge Koh responded to Apple today on this motion and basically denied this ludicrous request. Things aren't rosy for Samsung though. The judge listed out the five reasons she believes that Samsung wants to use the "Sony-style" evidence. These reasons are,

    “(1) [to] rebut Apple’s creation theory that the iPhone was ‘revolutionary’; (2) to rebut allegations of copying; (3) to establish that the industry at large was moving toward the basic design concepts; (4) to prove design functionality; and (5) to rebut allegations of willfulness.”

    Judge Koh, however, will only allow Samsung to attempt to prove the fourth one reason, and will not permit the others.

    Third, Apple is extremely frightened of today's court proceedings because Samsung plans to introduce Apple's closely guarded device specific sales numbers to the court as part of their defense. This of course, will indirectly give it to the public, and Apple doesn't want that. They have filed a motion to block Samsung from releasing this info. They claimed to the court that it will cause “severe harm to Apple” if disclosed. The judge has yet to rule on this.

    It's increasingly becoming obvious that Judge Koh is in Apple's pocket.

    Why is Apple so afraid to bring out the true sales numbers? Have they been faking?

    It just came out today that one of the jurors' grandparents have a very large stock investment in Apple. If Apple wins, his grandparents will get money. If Apple loses, his grandparents will lose money. Judge Koh declared that he could stay in the jury because his grandparents' stock ownership does not affect his judgement.


    ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????????????????????

    Seriously, either she slept her way up to the top to become judge or she's in Apple's pocket. Forget the law. All of this defies common sense.

    Apple Jury to Hear Arguments in Samsung Patent-Infringement Case - The Washington Post

    One juror said he hopes to go to college to study software development for video games. Early in the selection process he asked Koh if his grandparents’ Apple shares disqualified him from serving on the jury.

    The judge asked if he stood to profit from the stock? The judge said he was fit to serve after he told her the only way he might benefit is if the shares were somehow passed on to him through his parents.

    It's toward the end. The guy was not dismissed. He is currently on the jury even though he admitted his grandparents owned large amount of apple stock.
