Legal "The 2010 report, translated from Korean, goes feature by feature, evaluating how Samsung's phone stacks up against the iPhone. Authored by Samsung's product engineering team, the document evaluates everything from the home screen to the browser to the built in apps on both devices. In each case, it comes up with a recommendation on what Samsung should do going forward and in most cases its answer is simple: Make it work more like the iPhone." Pretty damning. We still need to know a few things: how many of these were actually implemented? How common are these types of comparisons (i.e., does Apple have them)? Are these protected by patents and the like? And, but that's largely irrelevant and mostly of interest to me because I'm a translator myself, who translated the document, and how well has he or she done the job?

And that, look and feel, are protected by trademark law. You may not agree with it but it works that way.


So why isn't this trial about trademark infringement then?

from this verge article: (http://www.theverge.com/2012/7/30/3199424/apple-vs-samsung-trial-gu...)

"So while Apple started off in full assault mode with a colossal list of trademarks, trade dress registrations, design patents and technical utility patents in its complaint, everything has been trimmed back for trial: all of its trademark claims have been dismissed, only one registered and limited unregistered trade dress claims remain, and the patent infringement allegations have been reduced to four design patents and three utility patents."

In other words, they didn't have much of a case.
