Tech giant apple and Samsung could soon get locked in a multi billion dollar court battle that could hurt their company's the battle is over their Smartphone and tablet computers.
Apple is accused Samsung of copying its own designs both in appearance it and how gadgets work.
You -- -- Apple's iPhone four on the left Samsung's galaxy S three on the right similar.
According to court documents Samsung is argue that Apple's designs are not so unique.
Because you know before this and I Apple iPhone -- all the things that we're just like it right remember remember all the things.
-- -- -- trial is it to get underway next week last year Samsung overtook apple and Nokia as the largest seller of -- around the world with us now.
The Wall Street Journal's assistant managing editor and executive business editor John busing the Wall Street Journal owned by the parent company this network just as an observation.
An observation of fact not -- commentary on the situation.
Anybody who says they'd seen anything quite like this before this.
Well apple says that's the case we look no I'm positive yeah where they came out.
This is the first one had ever seeming like an ever out and -- -- -- yeah and since -- says look you know if you -- a build a phone -- has to -- your -- gonna look.
Naturally similar to what an iPhone looks like -- is not wasting -- is also -- functions in the phone.
That are very similar to the way hours operates like the rubber banding word image kind of jogs away from the side if you over correct -- your finger.
And -- six as -- -- to get if I look at the Apple Computer.
There's technology in it that we think infringes on our Samsung's.
Patents such as how you transmit information so this.
This case is going to be very substantial domestically.
And globally as well they're similar faces that have been filed around the world what what will it mean for consumers.
I'll Ashley Jones has the story of this in today's paper and I think they think that consumers are going to be looking at -- you be buying the phones are not gonna really be paying attention to this.
If this goes against Samsung or if it goes against apple.
Theoretically one of the other would be cause to pull their product and pay licensing fees to the other.
Depending upon what the judge decides but the burden of proof on this is gonna be on apple -- we.
A difficult case in court for them to approve that Sampson didn't come up with some of this on their own.
And that's enough of this wasn't in the general universe of technology and Smartphone technology.
That it was kind of common property.
Some some gadgets as you call them that we're heading to market didn't get to market.
Because apple said hey that's our stuff you've copied.
Will that make it to market and might -- be.
Held liable in any way for the fact that.
He got stopped in the first place while some some some gets stopped all on go along the way if they court decides it time for to get you know it it doesn't get to market where the -- Sampson Sampson products are sold generically out there are now obvious to point out.
They have -- apple has the biggest seller of it's of -- of Smartphones with the end were primarily with the android operating system inside so this is already kind of well down the pike.
It's -- for consumers they might find themselves having to possibly pay a little bit more for licensing fees are substantial.
But that's that's still way to be decided that that's and and and you were kind of that's unclear where this is gonna play out in court long -- expensive relative.
