Apple, Samsung ready closing arguments in patent case

John P. Mello Jr. | Aug. 21, 2012
Apple and Samsung are heading to closing arguments in their patent infringement trial, and reputations and big bucks are at stake.

Nevertheless, Samsung continued its case against Apple.

Among other things, it argues the Cupertino, California-based company violated Samsung's intellectual property for scrolling through photographs, sending them through email, indexing them, and playing MP3 music files.

Apple attempted to undercut the value of those patents to Samsung. The photo scrolling patent, for example, hadn't been used by the South Korean company in a smartphone in three years, it argued.

Apple also pressed its copycat case against Samsung while cross-examining one of its technical witnesses. It did that by introducing email messages attributed to Google that showed the search giant was concerned about Samsung's phone designs too closely copying Apple's.
