Legal "Comparing Samsung's flagship products before and after release of the iPhone & iPad, and how Apple's intellectual property infringement claims hold up." A terrible visual guide that ignores not only Samsung's own pre-iPhone designs, but also - and worse yet - the thirty-odd years of mobile computing that preceded the iPhone. Typical of today's technology world: a complete and utter lack of historical sense. Worse yet are the claims about icons: only the phone icon is similar, but Apple did not invent the green phone icon. This is a remnant of virtually all earlier phones which use a green phone icon for initiate/answer call, and a red phone icon for terminate/reject call. Claiming this deserves IP protection is beyond ridiculous, and shows just how low Apple is willing to go.

Member since:

Apple argues this is systemic and intentional (i.e. counterfeiting)

I seriously hope that they are not arguing that it is counterfeiting. That would take incompetence to a new level.
Samsung may, or may not, be violating Apple patents and mimicking Apple designs but none of that is counterfeiting.

Their argument has some very significant evidence behind it.

If their argument is that Samsung is counterfeiting iPhones then no, there's no evidence at all for that.
