Where is the court that try to resolve Samsung and Apple case LOCATED? How does Samsung make sure That the court has ethics?


Summer answers:


At the Robert Peckham U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building in San Jose, Calif.

If either party believes that any of the courts rulings or judgments are unethical, they can appeal them. Of course, in a case this big, appeals – from both sides – will probably drag on for years anyway.


Ruth asks…

Now that Apple has won their case against Samsung for copying their products will they go after Google?

Because their Android operating system copies many of the iPhone’s features as well?

Where is all this heading?

Summer answers:

Windows is dominating the Tech Industry today like never before… IOS is something that’s hiding behind expectations that roar around the world for it’s launch of stylish ground-breaking devices and software. About Android from Google, It really did copied some great features of Apple iOS, and for that Samsung got the drawback. Samsung thought like it’s really have a exceptionable bond with Androids, so it created so much Smartphones for cheap prices and with strong hardware in the name of Android, so Apple looked through Samsung Smartphones mainly to produce case for copying patents of it’s own Devices and software.
We all know that Android has got married with Motorola Mobile company, simply because it found Motorola, a cutting-edge design with awesome performance…and suites perfect with Android OS. Now, Samsung is heading to Windows phone platform to defeat Nokia. Some says that Windows have a great connection with Nokia devices and it may become more close than any other.
Anyway We are living in the World of Hot Techno Trends as it is today.
Cheers 🙂

Sandra asks…

What Were the Patents that Samsung stole from Apple?

In the recent one billion dollar case. I have searched but I can’t find what were the exact designs and patents?

Summer answers:

SAN JOSE, Calif. — After a year of scorched-earth litigation, a jury decided Friday that Samsung ripped off the innovative technology used by Apple to create its revolutionary iPhone and iPad.
The jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in the latest skirmish of a global legal battle between the two tech giants. An appeal is expected.
Apple Inc. Filed its patent infringement lawsuit in April 2011 and engaged legions of the country’s highest-paid patent lawyers to demand $2.5 billion from its top smartphone competitor. Samsung Electronics Co. Fired back with its own lawsuit seeking $399 million.
The verdict, however, belonged exclusively to Apple, as the jury rejected all Samsung’s claims against Apple. Jurors also decided against some of Apple’s claims involving the two dozen Samsung devices at issue, declining to award the full $2.5 billion Apple demanded.
However, the jury found that several Samsung products illegally used such Apple creations as the “bounce-back” feature when a user scrolls to an end image, and the ability to zoom text with a tap of a finger.
Apple lawyer plans to formally demand Samsung pull its most popular cellphones and computer tablets from the U.S. Market. They also can ask the judge to triple the damages to $3 billion. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh will decide those issues along with Samsung’s demand she overturn the jury’s verdict in several weeks.
The outcome of the case is likely to have ripple effects in the smartphone market. After seeing Samsung’s legal defeat, other device makers relying on Android may become more reluctant to use the software and risk getting dragged into court.
“Some of these device makers might end up saying, `We love Android, but we really don’t want to fight with Apple anymore,” said Christopher Marlett, CEO of MDB Capital Group, an investment bank specializing in intellectual property.
ISI Group analyst also viewed the verdict as a blow to Android, as much as Samsung.
During closing arguments at the trial, Apple attorney Harold McElhinny claimed Samsung was having a “crisis of design” after the 2007 launch of the iPhone, and executives with the South Korean company were determined to illegally cash in on the success of the revolutionary device.
Samsung’s lawyers countered that it was legally giving consumers what they want: smartphones with big screens. They said Samsung didn’t violate any of Apple’s patents and further alleged innovations claimed by Apple were actually created by other companies.
Samsung, headquartered in Seoul, responded to the verdict, saying in a statement it was “unfortunate that patent law can be manipulated to give one company a monopoly over rectangles with rounded corners.”
“Today’s verdict should not be viewed as a win for Apple, but as a loss for the American consumer. It will lead to fewer choices, less innovation, and potentially higher prices,” Samsung said.
The jurors’ determination that Samsung took Apple’s ideas probably matters more to the companies than the damages figures, Marlett said.
“I don’t know if $1 billion is hugely significant to Apple or Samsung,” Marlett said. “But there is a social cost here. As a company, you don’t want to be known as someone who steals from someone else. I am sure Samsung wants to be known as an innovator, especially since a lot of Asian companies have become known for copying the designs of innovators.”
Samsung has emerged as one of Apple’s biggest rivals and has overtaken as the leading smartphone maker. Samsung’s Galaxy line of phones run on Android, a mobile operating system that Google Inc. Has given out for free to Samsung and other phone makers.
Google entered the smartphone market while its then-CEO Eric Schmidt was on Apple’s board, infuriating Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who considered Android to be a blatant rip off of the iPhone’s innovations.
After shoving Schmidt off Apple’s board, Jobs vowed that Apple would resort to “thermonuclear war” to destroy Android and its allies.
If Android lose any ground in the mobile computing market, that would hurt Google, too. That’s because Google relies on Android to drive mobile traffic to its search engine and services to sell more advertising.

Michael asks…

Samsung Vs Apple in simple language please?

Apple won the case in US. What exactly did they copy? I have heard they violated software patents, design patents, etc. anybody tell me in simple terms what problems did Apple had with Samsung? Are the problems only with the looks of the Samsung Galaxy smartphones? Or zoom in zoom out’s in the software?
Does it have anything to do with the profit and loss of Android platform of Google?? i am right now enjoying my experience with Samsung Galaxy Ace coz I don’t have enough money to buy any of Apple‘s phone. Will Samsung not make such good phones in future?? A detailed explanation is expected. 🙂 Sources please if any………

Summer answers:

Plain and simple “monopoly”

They just sue Samsung and not the OS or it’s platform (Google)

Samsung still and will be creating new innovative phones and nobody could stop that, the verdict wouldn’t affect that much on creating new Samsung smartphones and tablets

Joseph asks…

Is samsung galaxy s3 banned?

After that apple case on galaxy s3 banned??

Summer answers:

No it’s not, Samsung just had to pay Apple a monetary value as a penalty for the phones already made and are not allowed to use apple patented technology in future devices.

The funny part is Apple uses Samsung parts in their devices. This is all just part of doing business it doesn’t affect the customer.
