Judge said both companies have certain risks on this trial. I don't believe it's one way street. This whole thing got started by Samsung demanding 2.4% of royalty on iPhone/iPAD products using Samsung patents. The early negotiation failed but if you look at the number of patents Samsung owns (Second largest after IBM), Apple does not even seem to come close to being an high tech company
in terms of number of patents owned.
How many Apple fans would feel this trial was fair if it was being held in Seoul with a Korean jury and covered primarily by Korean journalists? It is true the entire trial and the coverage is naturally biased in favor of apple.
