Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit about inspiration

By Daniel Chubb - Aug 3, 2012

The Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit might involve a lot of politics and interesting stories, but in a nutshell it’s about Apple trying to make a jury see that Samsung has copied the iPhone, although for Samsung they believe their smartphones were inspired by Apple and they didn’t steal patented designs. The outcome of this trial is hard to predict at this stage, and currently the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuit is proving to be entertainment for fans that is also delivering some behind the scenes insight.

We have seen some interesting things emerge from the first few days of the Apple vs. Samsung trial, and you can see most of the highlights explained in the videos below this article. This includes a testimony that revealed some real insight into the design process for Apple, and also what Steve Jobs thought about the potential for the iPhone.

Some people feel this trial is more about winning public opinion than the court’s outcome, which couldn’t be more obvious after Samsung were forbidden from releasing some evidence, and then the Koreans went ahead and did it anyway. This key evidence included some photo slides, seen in the video below, which paint a picture that Samsung had been designing a smartphone like the iPhone before the first Apple phone launched.

The Samsung F700 had been one of the concepts before the first generation iPhone released, although we’d love to hear what you think about these early Samsung designs when compared to the iPhone. The Judge, Lucy Koh, is certainly not happy with these slides becoming public and has put Samsung on her bad side, but this reveal might have won some public opinion and certainly made things clearer for Android fans.

Do you think Samsung stole design ideas from Apple?
