Samsung Wants to Ask Potential Jurors 700 Questions, Apple Only Has 49

Samsung wants to ask potential jurors 700 questions. Apple only has 49 questions, reports FOSS Patents.

Late on Wednesday, Apple and Samsung filed, with a view to the trial that is scheduled to start on July 30, their proposed jury verdict forms and the questions that prospective jurors will be asked when they are selected from the "venire" (persons that have jury duty). The parties' proposals could hardly be further apart.

The most striking difference between the proposed verdict forms is that Samsung wants the jury to provide very fine-grained answers, resulting in a total of roughly 700 (!) questions (spanning 40 pages), while Apple proposes only 49 questions (spanning 6 pages) for the jury.

Samsung wants to find jurors that aren't Apple fanboys and don't have a bias against Asian companies. Some of Samsung's questions include:

4. Do you have any negative impressions or opinions about South Korean companies or business people?

5. Do you think many Asian companies steal what others have created and sell products based on copied innovation?

6. Have you been negatively impacted by the recent economic downturn?

Apple wants to know what jurors think of copying other people's ideas:

1. Have you ever created or developed something and had the idea taken from you? If yes, please explain.

2. Have you ever been accused of taking the idea of another? If yes, please explain.

It's unclear what Judge Koh's reaction to Samsung's lengthy form be will.

looks like the difference of configuration settings you have to go through to set up either an iPhone or Galaxy device before you can use it...
