“At the Apple v. Samsung patent infringement trial, “Apple called professor Rasvin Balakrishnan to testify about the ‘812 patent — also known as the ‘bounce-back patent.’ Balakrishnan was one of the best witnesses we’ve seen to date, taking the jury step by step through the nuances of the patent, and why some 20 Samsung smartphones and tablets infringe upon it in either their browser, contacts, or photo gallery apps,” Bryan Bishop reports for The The Verge.
“During cross-examination, Samsung attorney Kevin Johnson attempted to discredit Balakrishnan, first by trying to insinuate that two slides presented by Apple were incorrect. In fact, the images Johnson showed featured representative stills from a video the slides actually contained; the video itself was consistent with the labeling and testimony,” Bishop reports. “Johnson then challenged Balakrishnan by giving a live demonstration of a 7-inch Galaxy Tab that didn’t incorporate the bounce-back feature — while neglecting to mention what operating system or skin it was running. He followed it up with a video that he said proved the Galaxy Tab 10.1 didn’t use the feature either. Unfortunately for Johnson, Balakrishnan had to point out that in the video the user wasn’t actually scrolling to the end of the web page in question — a requirement to trigger the feature in the first place.”
Bishop reports, “Samsung pulled a similar trick when speaking to Karan Singh, a professor of computer science at the University of Toronto.”
