Samsung Objects to 'Gratuitous Images' of Steve Jobs in Apple Trial Presentation

Posted by · 7508 views · Translate
Samsung filed an objection to Apple's use of Steve Jobs photos in its opening presentation for trial, reports FOSS Patents.

Samsung objected to the images of Steve Jobs appearing in Slide Nos. 6, 7, 12, 16, and 29 of the opening presentation.

According to the company, "[t]hese gratuitous images have no evidentiary value and have been asserted in order to turn the trial into the popularity contest that the Court prohibited." Samsung then quoted the ruling which said: "Evidence related to Steve Jobs will generally be excluded unless it is specifically relevant to the IP rights at issue in the case, although the Court will make that determination on a case-by-case basis."

Late last night Judge Koh dismissed Samsung's objections ruling that the use of Steve Jobs images is "relevant to Apple's iPhone design patent and trade dress claims and is not unduly prejudicial".

This judge seems very biased in this case, its a good thing that its up to a jury but all in all this is just a huge wate of everyones time and effort lets face it when iphone 2g was out sony Exprian and Lg Viewty had a better cam better screen and were hspa compliant but had sucky GUI's what made Iphone was its usability not REALLY its design it was simple and easy to use..... thats my opinion... if you dont like it you can find a pole position your ass over it and go F your self :).....

The real thing that made iPhone, the revolutionary phone, was the way Steve Jobs explained the Design: Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. And as an industrial designer, I have to mention that, its the only way that a simple phone could turn into something great like iPhone.
