Steve Jobs’ own words:

At a court 10 miles from Apple HQ.
With a Judge that was a former Apple Lawyer.
And a Jury Forman sued into bankruptcy by a partially owned Samsung Company.
PL-GM, 14 Feb 2014Aplogies. You are quite right. Nokia did take Apple to court but here is the the best part; No... moreNokia deserved to win. And Apple won this time. What's your point? At least Nokia wasn't trying to use SEPs as a weapon. Now that would be disgusting and underhanded.
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2014Nah it's just that Apple hasn't been caught bribing the US officialsNah, it's just that Samsung hasn't been caught bribing European judges either. (see how much fun is it to throw around baseless statements)

These companies have brought lawsuits against multiple other companies. The folks on this site only seem to focus on the Samsung vs Apple one though. You sue the biggest infringer to try to set precedent. Samsung was also probably an easier target since they have had a history of copying others and being sued for ifringement multiple times. See: Motorola, RIM, Sharp, LG, Pioneer, etc. You all seem to forget that HTC, Nokia and Sony were bigger names in the industry when this all started.
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2014by the way, didn't Nokia sue Apple first?Aplogies. You are quite right. Nokia did take Apple to court but here is the the best part; Nokia won! So Apple are absolute hyporcrites at best.

Thanks for tacit agreement. This has never been about patent infringement, it is all about manipulating the legal system to get products banned and stifle competition. Apple can no lonegr bring devcies to market that are truly innovative. Thus have to reply on the court room to try and get rid of their competiton. Hence why they only go for market leaders.

Also, I find it funny that you're calling this judge dishonest when Samsung has actually been caught bribing public officials in the past. Maybe they couldn't buy this one off with a job like they did the UK judge.
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2014The judge presiding the trial is korean. Korean court also has sided Apple with their claims. True indeed!
If Apple is truly worried about patent infringement, why do they not take all the infringers to court and not just the market leaders? The answer is obvious. They can no longer innovate and they just want to try and stifle competition by getting the products banned on grounds of patent infringement. After all, Apple had the nerve to try and claim patent infringement for any device that was rectangular at one point. When Nokia were market leaders they went after them. Now it is Samsung.
Additionally a US judge who is about as honest as a $3 note and clearly biased to the US company does not help either. She would not know honest or integrity if they bit her. I wonder how much she will get of the damages Samsung have to pay Apple? Even 1% will set her up for life.
