Poll: Apple v Samsung: Who Will Win?
Total Votes: 20
Apple. It’s clear Samsung copied the iPhone and iPad.
Samsung. They came up with their own designs, and Apple owes licensing fees.
The companies will reach a settlement before the jury returns a verdict.

    Apple and Samsung’s mobile device patent infringement lawsuit will go to the jury this week after both side finish filing their requests for jury instructions. Who do you think will come out the winner?

    Probably Neither will win, not outright, but will spin it that they did.

    But that doesn’t stifle hope that there will be a reasonable outcome that a company cannot outright copy another’s product down to the smallest details (look and feel, chargers, etc).

    Oh God, I don’t know I have only read snippets of testimony. If Apple wins it may not be a full victory.

    I suspect Apple will “win” but at a greatly reduced level.  Samsung will “win” on their FRAND counter and Apple will pay a greatly reduced FRAND licensing rate.

    For sure there will be appeals.

    Neither. They both have already spent far more cash and reputation on this case than they should have.

    With appeals it will drag out for years more, during which both will keep doing what they’re doing. Finally the court will resolve this somewhere in the middle, near to the result they should have been able to negotiate. By then the technology will have evolved into something different, and both will be producing other devices that look different and use different technology so the result will be moot anyway.

    They should have negotiated a resolution. See the recent deal between MS and Apple. In situations like this that’s the only way either side can win.

      Apple would have to win , i guess. But then , with different verdicts in different parts of the world, i believe they would have to go for compromise.
