Apple has filed inaccurate evidence again in a major case against Samsung, this time in the Netherlands, where the company is arguing Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphones are too similar to its iPhone 3G, reports “Computerworld UK” (http://macte.ch/hVsPX).
In the ongoing legal brouhaha, a picture of a Galaxy S smartphone was allegedly resized to match an iPhone 3G. During the court hearing last week, Samsung’s lawyer, Bas Berghuis of Simmons and Simmons, claimed that Apple has been “manipulating visual evidence, making Samsung’s devices appear more similar to Apple’s,” says “Computerworld UK.”
Earlier this week, Apple and its lawyers were accused of misleading the judge of a Düsseldorf court by filing flawed evidence of the similarity between the iPad 2 and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets based on an inaccurate picture, an investigation by Webwereld.nl (http://macte.ch/JHmCh), a Dutch IDG publication, reported.
Last week, the German court ordered a preliminary injunction against the distribution of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in all of Europe, except the Netherlands, where a separate and broader case is under way, in what has become a global war between Apple and Samsung for intellectual property rights on their products and technologies.
However, Apple has apparently failed to provide the German judge with accurate evidence, according to “Webwereld.nl.” At least one of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 pictures that Apple provided as evidence in the German case is either wrong or manipulated, the article adds.
