Apple has denied Samsung’s request to see the source code for iOS 6, according to “The Korea Times” (http://tinyurl.com/bja3q42). Samsung wants to see the innards of the operating system, purportedly to see whether its technology violates any of its patents.
Officials from the Seoul Central District Court say Samsung’s legal representatives argue that it’s impossible to confirm whether its patent has been infringed on or not without Apple providing the source code. Apple legal reps called the request “insane,” per “The Korea Times.”
“It doesn’t’ make any sense. Samsung is saying that we should give up protecting our most important data,” Apple legal eagles are quoted as saying.
