Apple accuses Samsung of making false claims; submitting doctored, misleading exhibits to court

“Apple has raised a series of objections to Samsung’s proposed exhibits intended for use during cross examination today, accusing the company of repeatedly creating evidence that is distorted, obscured or otherwise misleading while also raising false objections to Apple’s own evidence,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.

“Among the objections Apple raised was an exhibit created by Samsung that the company described as ‘misleading’ because Samsung had altered the ‘accused devices’ to ‘remove the screen, which may distract the jury from the asserted design,’ added graphics ‘that obscure portions of the accused devices, distracting from the overall impression of the accused designs,’ used images that ‘are not to scale or are misleadingly scaled,’ and ‘only show partial views of the asserted designs and trade dress,'” Dilger reports.

Dilger reports, “A comparison of the two devices with the screen visible would clearly not be in Samsung’s interest when defending against Apple’s arguments that it has ‘slavishly copied’ the iPhone. Recent testimony from Apple’s iOS head Scott Forestall noted how Samsung had ‘copied many of the icons we created. they copied them blatantly and directly,’ specifically noting examples such as the merge call button.”
