Samsung Strikes Back At Apple


After Samsung took a beating from Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) at a trial in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California, it is Samsung's turn to strike back.

Apple has asked for $2.5 billion in damages over claims that Samsung copied many of the features of the iPhone and iPad so that it could increase the popularity of its own tablets and smartphones. Samsung witnesses have started to explain that they came up with the features of their machines without any concern about Apple's flagship products. Reuters reports:

Samsung called designer Jeeyuen Wang, who said she and a large Korean team worked hard for three months to create Samsung's own icon designs for Galaxy S phones.

With so much money at stake, who would have expected Samsung to take any other position?
