Considering Samsung has the Patent for The "Retina" display used in the ipads and the fact they manufacture most of Apple's hardware can backfire for Apple. If Apple wins, say goodbye to the Ipad 2,ipod,mac,etc. Also Apple is suing samsung because their tablet is too "square", Apple actually has patented the square with rounded edges. That is the worst judicial allowment ever.Come sue me too Apple, my table is a square. Also Apple's slide to unlock feature is a metaphor. And in Apples 1988-1994 court battle, it was decided illegal to patent a metaphor. Yet another judicial error/ law breaking streak in apple. Die Crapple die!!! Love ya Samsung

Refer to Wang vs Mitsubishi*. The original DRAM SIMM patent, JEDEC standardization and Wang's attempt to claim royalties. 1983. Wang lost both the jury trial and on appeals. The obligations of Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) are becoming more and more clear with every court case. If you participate in an SDO, disclose your patent applications, or don't expect royalties. More recently, a well-known DRAM IP firm spent hundreds of millions in an effort to defend itself. But it finally lost its latest case against an Idaho memory company re: key synchronous DRAM patents. The IP firm failed to disclose key patent applications to standards committees, while it was a member of an SDO in the mid-1990's. * Wang Laboratories, Inc. v. Mitsubishi Electronics America, Inc. and Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, 103 F.3d 1571; 41 U.S.P.Q.2D (BNA) 1263 (Fed. Cir. 1997).

standards rules do not trump law patent or otherwise. What is a "timely manner". If this were to be upheld in court it could only allow for the untimly time for relief. All other times would require a royalty payment. Or swapping royalty payments.

It's being tried in the US because the issue is US issued patents. Take the tin foil hats off folks. Or suspend the fan-boi attitudes. What Rick has reported has irked me both ways, that means he's doing his job.

The trail is going on. What will happen after the judgement? Suppose Apple wins will Samsung will bring another new model to sell in USA? or if Samsung wins will Apple going to pay royalty to Samusung? or if both win in their respective patents Apple and Samsung will continue to sell their same products world wide?

Rick, thanks for keeping the good work ethics. however, sometime i perceive your article to be biased towards Apple. I do not know whether it is because the case has been so till now.

the perceived bias is unjust. Does it mean that any company with US origin can have favorable situation if it is HQ in US?

US is perhaps the best place for trial. Good luck to Apple.

Greg.Dee and SiliconAsia, can it. Rick is doing a great job covering this trial. Geez...lighten up. Apple's attorneys are obviously well coached in the "marketing message" and in the end Apple wants to make sure their "message" is communicated even through this trial. Mr. Merritt is just reporting the facts clearly and I for one appreciate his work. It is fascinating to read. BTW - I am not an Apple "fan boy" - I work for Fujitsu. I do, however, have an iPad and I love it. I use a BlackBerry for my phone - just in case anybody is interested :)
