Not yet a win
Can you stop referring to the Apple Samsung case as a win for Apple. They may be in the lead heading into extra time but the final result is not yet in and the ref may well decide it needs to be replayed.
Apple is appealing a Tokyo ruling that got Samsung off the hook on patent infringement just after the fruity firm won big in the US. A week after Apple's epic infringement win in California, the Tokyo District Court said that Samsung wasn't violating a Cupertino patent for synching music and video data with servers and ordered …
It is obvious to me as I see problems with the latest iphones, Apple is far more concerned with being a monopoly than providing a innovative product. This whole insanity has gone on far enough. Governments need to step in and stop this anti-competitive business plan of Apples. As for me, I will never buy an Apple product.
Apple: "How can you deny us a win here after we won in California?!"
Tokyo Court: "What does a ruling in the United States have to do with Japan?"
Apple: "It should set precedent in all US states..."
Tokyo Court: "Japan is not a US state..."
Apple: "Is the court certain of that? And is the court willing to risk...thermonuclear war to prove it?!"
Tokyo Court: "That red, Apple-shaped button in your brief case isn't even connected to anything! I charge you with contempt of court!"
Apple: "And I charge you with contempt of Apple!"
If Samsung is indeed copying Apple, then Google should add Samsung products to all Apple search results if for nothing else, the sheer fun of hearing Appleites heads explode everywhere.
That latest Samsung commercial in the Apple line always makes me snicker.
More on the debacle: “Will $1 bil. verdict for Apple hold?”
“Will $1 bil. verdict for Apple hold?”
“Another lawyer, who requested anonymity due to client matters, said these new issues will be taken up by Samsung’s lawyers and “without a doubt” be used as leverage in a cross-licensing deal on the sidelines.
“In the end, only the final verdict will have a huge impact but these bits of information that are constantly mentioned are probably being talked about by the lawyers of both firms,” he said.
He also pointed out that filings by both parties have now gone public, which shows how some of the claims made by Apple’s lawyers were made out of context. “It shows that there never was a direct order from Samsung to its employees to copy the iPhone among some new facts that puts Samsung in a more favorable light,” he said.
Spokesmen from both firms declined to comment on the matter.”
Company A accuses Company S of patent infringement. Or vice versa.
Judge flips coin.
Loser appeals and goes to "proper" court from which there is no appeal.
There does seem to be little point in going to anything other than the "top" court straight away since almost every case is appealed upwards until it reaches whatever the local equivalent of the "top"court is.
