Legal In order to not overwhelm OSNews with even more legal news, I didn't report on the recent developments in Apple v. Samsung until we had some more stuff to consolidate. Well, since the goings been getting good lately there, let's talk about it. Samsung was ordered to hand over a slew of unreleased products and materials to Apple, and now, Samsung, for its part, has demanded that Apple hands over the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 to Samsung. If they exist. This is gettin' good.

Debating the merits of this complain in open court, especially as Apple is likely to seek a preliminary injunction, is not practical. It's going to be a matter of dueling documents (as most commercial litigation).

Remember, as the judge said, their trying to establish if the Samsung products are so similar that they are likely to cause consumer confusion.

Then Apple can inspect the already disclosed/released products, at an agreed location.

The point is that there is no need for Samsung to reveal to Apple anything that is not yet disclosed/released.

However, Apple really has no valid claim on products with a touchscreen and a bezel in the styles of the Iphones and Ipads, as there is plenty of prior art of very similar design.
