Legal Previously redacted documents presented in the Apple-Samsung case do not support Apple's claims that Samsung issued a 'copy-the-iPhone'-order to its designers. It's pretty damning. Apple has very selectively and actively deleted sections of internal Samsung documents and talks to make it seem as if Samsung's designers were ordered to copy the iPhone. With the unredacted, full documents without Apple's deletions in hand, a completely different picture emerges: Samsung's designers are told to be as different and creative as possible. There's no 'copy the iPhone'-order anywhere, as Apple claimed. Instead, it says this: "designers rightly must make their own designs with conviction and confidence; do not strive to do designs to please me (the president); instead make designs with faces that are creative and diverse." I guess my initial scepticism about the documents was not uncalled for. What do you know - lawyers twist and turn the truth. Shocker, huh?

When did Apple claim "Samsung issued a 'copy-the-iPhone'-order to its designers"? I would love to see this "quote."

Now they "made it seem" Samsung designers "were ordered to copy the iPhone." When did Apple make it seem there was an order to copy the iPhone? I followed the trial; I was never under this impression. Please provide a quote.

There's no 'copy the iPhone'-order anywhere, as Apple claimed.


You've now claimed Apple claimed there was a "copy the iPhone" order 3 times now in nearly as many sentences. Please point me to a quote or any document which even remotely makes it appear there was an order to copy?

Who is being "selective" and "actively deleting" to "make it seem as if" something else is the truth?
