We all knew that there are the ongoing patent between Apple and Samsung amnd Apple's legal team claims that the iPhone had created a "crisis in design" at Samsung after the product was released.
Samsung stratefy chief Justin Denison then responded by saying that Apple's claims are nothing more than hyperbole. Apple however revealed that the internal documents from Samsung that compared the designs of its rival gadgets to "Heaven and Earth."
Currently, no ones knows how much of a negative impact these documents could have on Samsung's case and last week Samsung was denied the right to reveal some of Apple's greatest secrets. Samsung had wanter to counter attack by discussing a series of documents which includes those whith iPhone, iPad and iPod sales data during its cross examination of Philip Schiller, Apple's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing. Unfortunately, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh has shut down this effort and prevented the sensitive materials from becoming public.
This meaningless patent and design disputes are expected to continue for some time and the outcome could have lifelong ramifications that greatly change the way tech companies do business.
If the jury agrees with Apple's claims, Samsung could be forced to pay billion of dollars in damages, pull its tablets and other devides from the store shelves and implement massive redesigns before any future products can be released, in other words, Samsung is so doom if it really happens.
If the jury sides with Samsung, it could influence future patent disputes and diminish Apple's claims against other corporations.
In defending the iPhone and iPad, Apple CEO Tim Cook has referred to his company as the developer of the world , a title the company does not want to have. "We can't take all of our energy and all of our care and finish the painting, then have someone else put their name on it," said Cook.
So what do you think? Did Apple's iPhone really cause a "Crisis in Design" for Samsung?
Sometime Apple got their reason to sue other smartphones manufacturers, but Apple is getting more and more ridiculous as they are patterning every single thing they can think of as to prevent other manufacturer to overtake them. Meanwhile, Lawyers are laughing their ways back to home.
