Samsung to depose Jony Ive and other Apple designers by December 1st

“Apple and Samsung’s US-based litigation on track for trial in July 2012. That being the case, depositions of some of Apple’s key iPhone inventors will be taking place relatively soon,” Josh Rosenthall reports for Edible Apple.

“The inventors on Samsung’s radar include Jonathan Ive, Douglas Satzger, Shin Nishibori, and Christopher Stringer,” Rosenthall reports. “Originally, these depositions were supposed to be completed by November 1. Samsung in mid-October, however, filed a motion seeking an extension due to the fact that the witnesses would be unavailable before then.”

Rosenthall reports, “Apple’s suit against Samsung in the US was first filed in April of 2011 and has since snowballed into a multitude of lawsuits that cover the globe. Apple steadfastly claims that Samsung’s lineup of smartphones and tablets ‘slavishly’ copy the look and feel of Apple’s iOS. Samsung has since fired back with a number of countersuits seeking, quite unsuccessfully thus far, to ban the sale of iPhones and iPads.”

  1. Yeah … Cuz Johnny Ive has proven time and time again, to be a fuckin’ hack. From the iPod to the Macbook Air, the guy couldn’t design his way out of a wet paper bag.

    Dear Samsung,

    All Koreans are embarrassed because of this shit. Shut the hell up and start making better products. Get back to work.
