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?

Coming from Apple, I am not at all surprised, they are the same company that used Photoshop or something else to alter the aspect ratios of iPAD vs Galaxy Tab pictures to make them look like a copy in the German courts.

Damn right. Suddenly everyone conveniently forgot (or developed temporary amnesia) that rotten Apple fiasco. What a bunch of greedy liars.

You both seeem to forget that Samsung attempted to argue this and was denied. It's one of many examples of groklaw being wrong on this case.
