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?

Member since:

I give up. You clearly refuse to accept the presented clear and cut evidence that Apple argued Samsung gave a copy order. We've given you numerous pieces of evidence, and instead of just admitting you were wrong, you now even attribute things to me I never claimed in the first place. For instance, I never said this:

"This is not equivalent to claiming that a specific document presents a direct order to copy the iPhone."

Funnily enough, you actually admit that I was right one sentence earlier:

"Yes, a quote states that the entirety of Samsung's documents show a plan to copy the iPhone."

That is actually exactly what my claim was. So, it turns out you do actually admit you were wrong. Good.
