    The legal slugfest between partners-turned-competitors Apple and Samsung continues: Samsung has demanded that Apple release the iPhone 4S/5 and iPad 3 to their lawyers as part of a discovery process to determine if there was any infringement on Apple's part.

    This comes days after Apple demanded that Samsung hand over the Droid Charge, Infuse 4G, Galaxy S II, Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 8.9 to see whether or not these products should be blocked from the market. What's interesting and, frankly, a little weird about motion is that Apple has little at stake. While Samsung's line is for the most part on the market to be reviewed, Apple is characteristically hush-hush about whether or not the new iPhone and iPad exist, let alone when they will be released. They could very well kill the motion before it can get anywhere.

    Nilay Patel of This Is My Next believes that if Samsung can get Apple to take the bait, they can have Apple play their game by their terms:

    Apple and Samsung held negotiations for a year before giving up and heading to the courts, and I'm reliably informed that there haven't been any substantive settlement discussions since Apple first filed its complaint. That means talks have been at a standstill for a long time now, and I wouldn't be surprised if Samsung was trying to put some additional heat on Apple to try and kick negotiations back into gear.[/p]

    Nice way to hit back IMO, expect leaks soon lol [​IMG]

    they make it feel like apple is the only company copying samsung and samsung is the only company copying apple. How many different designs have we seen in the world that have got the idea from each other. They make it such a big issue because the other one is getting famous with their idea.

    Being a large US company Apple don't have to worry about prior art when making patent applications. A lot of this sort of shit could be avoided if the USPTO would either stop taking bribes or start doing it's job properly.
