Apple vs Samsung (image 002)

Ahead of their high-profile trial, scheduled to start in March, Apple and Samsung have submitted a list of all of the patents they are accusing each other of infringing, and applicable devices. Well this is a pared down list, trimmed by each side at Judge Koh’s orders.

This is the second time the two will meet in Koh’s northern California courtroom. The first time around, Samsung was found guilty of infringing on a few Apple patents and was forced to pay close to $1 billion in damages. This time, there may be even more at stake…

As we told you back in January, Apple has already won a small victory in the proceedings. In a preliminary hearing, Judge Koh tossed one of Samsung’s patents out and found it guilty of infringing on one of Apple’s patents, so neither will need to be seen by the jury.

But FOSS Patents has posted a list of the patents and alleged infringing devices that did make it (via AppleInsider):



-U.S. Patent No. 5,946,647 for a “System and method for performing an action on a structure in computer-generated data” – Claim 9 
-U.S. Patent No. 6,847,959 for a “Universal interface for retrieval of information in a computer system” – Claim 25 
-U.S. Patent No. 7,761,414 for “Asynchronous data synchronization amongst devices” – Claim 20 
-U.S. Patent No. 8,046,721 for “Unlocking a device by performing gestures on an unlock image” – Claim 8 
-U.S. Patent No. 8,074,172 for a “Method, system, and graphical user interface for providing word recommendation” – Claim 18

It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out, as Samsung and Apple are involved in multiple patent wars around the globe. The two companies have tried on multiple occasions to reach an out-of-court settlement, but those efforts have yet to yield any type of positive results.

Samsung did recently reach an agreement with Google though, regarding patent rights. The two tech giants have agreed to a 10-year cross-licensing deal that covers all current and future technology patents—including all of those Motorola patents Google kept after the sale.

At any rate, the Apple-Samsung trial is scheduled to kick off March 30. Stay tuned.

    Why doesn’t Samsung bolster that list with some from Google?

    • erod434

      Why would they? Also there are no phones made directly from google anyways.

    iphone 5S ???

  • Maxim∑

    If Samsung wins Obama will probably veto it again lol.

    Those patents might violate FRAND so they might not get to far

    • Funny that they allow the patents pass (inventors pay for the patent) then they come back claiming it violates FRAND…total capitalism.

    Samsung already cheats people with inferior products. How much more money do they need?

    • Jason Baroni

      That’s true. Until today, 2014, the most popular phone by Samsung in Brazil is the Galaxy Y. Believe it or not hahaha

      • erod434

        Yes but you fail to realize that phones are extremely overpriced in Brazil. It costs about $1500 to buy an iPhone or a comparably priced samsung or any other manufacturer. The Galaxy Y is probably one of the only reasonably priced phones and is therefore very popular. Samsung ins’t cheating anyone, its the extremely bad economy of Brazil that forces imports to be extremely overpriced.

      • Jason Baroni

        Have I said anything different? Of course I don’t blame Samsung! Galaxy Y is popular here because it is really affordable. We have the most expensive APPLE products in the world, like an unlocked iPhone 5s 16GB for US$1300. Isn’t it expensive for you? Good. Come to Brazil and buy a Macbook Pro for US$4.000,00. You will be very pleased to pay for. And wow. Just buy a Galaxy Y being a power user in 2014. You gotta feel its processing power.

      • erod434

        You agreed with the comment that Samsung cheats people with inferior products, but now you say that you don’t blame them so I’m confused. The Y was released in Ocotober of 2011, so it is nearly 2 and 1/2 years old was originally released to be cheap so I don’t know what kind of processing power you were expecting out of it lol. It’s like the iphone 3g equivalent of today’s samsung devices.

      like glass phones that break first time you drop it. phones that come with a faulty antenna (but the user is blamed for holding it wrong) like being forced to by a charger for $35 when you easily get the same for $5, like phones that catch fire in people’s pockets or electrocute people to death.
