This week in Apple v. Samsung: a 'holy war' for US$2 billion

Martyn Williams | April 7, 2014
Apple and Samsung were back in San Jose federal court this week arguing over more patents and another set of devices. Apple is demanding more than US$2 billion in damages, in the second case between the companies in California.

"It's an attack on Android. That's what this case is about. It's about Apple trying to limit consumer choice and gain an advantage over its competitors." — Samsung's Quinn during his opening statement

"We wondered what could come after the iPod. We wanted to try and invent that future rather than let it happen to us." — Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller, recalling Apple's work developing the iPhone

"It was astonishing. We knew for at least one day we were a huge success and it had hopefully all been worth it." — Greg Christie on how he felt on the day the iPhone went on sale

What's next?

Apple will continue building its case with testimony from experts. Among those expected next week are Thomas Deniau, an Apple software engineer; Todd Mowry, a professor in Carnegie Mellon's computer science department; and Alex Snoeren, a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of California, San Diego.

The case will resume Monday morning and is scheduled to continue Tuesday and Friday next week, and those three days every week, through to late April. Jury deliberations are expected to begin immediately after the lawyers finish presenting their case.
