Apple Vs. Samsung Dan Simons Report CNN
Apple has been in battle with Samsung since before the death of Steve Jobs, the monopolized company has been constantly suing and appearing in court for about three years now and has constantly lost trials in regional courts around the United states until it was finally taken to the copyright infringement high court where Apple made it’s final case and sued the company for $2.5 Billion while Samsung is counter suing for $519 Million also for patent infringement. Both companies have made their final cases to the Jury and Apple has constantly tried their best to convince the court that them winning the case is not only important for the company but it’s also a win for the American copyright system. They strongly believe that Samsung has constantly copied their double tap to zoom feature, their landscape switch motion on the screen as well as even the sizes of their applications.
Apple convinces the jury that the average consumer can be easily confused by the similar software of the devices and therefore when making a decision to purchase one or the other they might mistakenly choose a Samsung product because of it. While Apple makes a strong case with the actual details of the copyright policy it is seemingly taking consumers for ignorant individuals that can’t tell the obvious difference between an iPhone 4S and a Galaxy S III.
