Judge from Samsung vs. Apple case is on Samsung's legal team - read the full textNot so long ago a UK judge ordered Apple to post on its website that Samsung didn’t copy the iPad, but then he wasn’t pleased with Apple’s execution of his order and made the company do it again, properly. Remember? Guess who that judge is working for now. Put your tin foil hats on and read on....

No one is suing anyone because they created a device with the same function as another company. It's the design. Samsung's been doing this for years. They did it to Motorola with the Blade (Razr....Blade, get it?) RIM with the Blackjack (Blackberry...Blackjack). Apple is just the first company to really stand up to them and call them out for their blatant copying.

Apple patented what? Already invented technologies? In fact, Apple inc, is that moronic company who has copied others work. Long before apple launched its first iPhone, companies like Nokia was making smartphone with symbian OS. Apple got an inspiration and started fooling rich customers with its products. And not only this ipad type touchbased devices were already invented long time ago and Microsoft was the first company who introduced its Windows OS on tablet like machine years before apple ''invented'' its ipad. Apple just copied the idea.So, in a nutshell, who is copying? Further more, I do not understand the patent laws of America. If one is powerful like Edison, he gets the fruit out of others hard work.
And on one ground, apple is claiming anything about something being copied? Its own products are using hardware manufactured by others companies especially by Samsung.

"Sir Robin Jacob is not a legal representative of Samsung Electronics. A highly reputed intellectual property expert and academic, Sir Robin has been contracted as an expert by a law firm that represents Samsung Electronics in its case against Ericsson."

I don't like Apple, but this doesn't look so good on Samsung... Remember, they do this all the time in their own country.

The good old revolving door. Looks like Samsung is stepping up their government officials buying spree to the international level.

Well this just makes things even after the biased judgement that the judge gave when they had that case in the Rotten Apples front garden!

LOL looks like money can buy almost everyone in this planet. What Samsung has done is normal for a company of its size. Same with Apple. Big companies seek all unethical means for the growth of their companies. It's just the fanboys who elevate the makers of their electronic gadgets to a level of god. They assume that just like god those companies have to be perfect and ethical.

> In reply to [deleted post]Samsung has a much worse history of bribing public officials than any other tech company out there. You tell yourself what makes you feel better, but it's easy to research past precedents on Samsung unethical, borderline illegal and full blown illegal actions in the past. It's just not a topic that most fanboys know about or like to acknowledge.
