Samsung is sure that it will win its on-going patent lawsuit against Apple.
The South Korean electronics giant said with confidence that it “trusts that the jurors” will agree with its case against archrival Apple.
On Monday, both smartphone giants, Apple and Samsung, joined another trial proceeding in one of the largest intellectual property infringement cases in history.
Apple is suing Samsung for accusations pertaining to the duplication of its iPhone and iPad designs, and is requesting an amount of $2.5 billion for damages.
On the other hand, Samsung is trying to raise a dispute on its defense claiming that Apple is just trying to put an effort to monopolize the rectangular phones market.
Samsung is very confident that the jurors will make the right judgment in its favor, with a solid argument that Apple could not block competition from such smartphones.
“Patent law was never intended to give a company a monopoly over an entire market,” quoted a spokesperson from Samsung.
Samsung clarified that its intentions are good and that it only wishes to create a strong market competition, offering a wider variety of consumer preferences.
“Samsung wants to compete with Apple, not to stifle competition; to offer more choices to consumers, not to limit their ability to buy the product they want at a price they can afford.”
The defending company is also clear to its conscience that the company has long been providing high standard products in the mobile market and that even large companies, including Apple, seek for Samsung to develop the core aspects of their products.
“We are proud of our long history of innovation in the mobile industry; proud that our patents set industry standards; proud that other manufacturers, including Apple, depend on us to manufacture the core components of their own mobile devices.”
“We trust that the jurors in this trial will agree that no company should have a monopoly over rectangular phones with rounded corners and large display screens; that consumers are not deceived when they purchase Samsung products into believing that they are made by Apple, which is the standard for infringement; and that when Apple does use the hundreds of industry standard patents owned by Samsung, it should pay the same reasonable fees that every other manufacturer does,” added Samsung.
Meanwhile, Samsung did admit that it was saddened by the fact that the dispute between both companies had to end up in court.
“While we would have preferred to settle our differences through negotiation, we look forward to the opportunity to present our case to the jury.”
The legal dispute between Apple and Samsung is anticipated to go on for four weeks. Considering the clash between two electronic giants, this is indeed one of the most noteworthy events in smartphone history.
