It looks like Samsung won’t be able to use Steve Job’s words in an upcoming trial against Apple in less than 2 weeks. According to Reuters, a US judge approved Apple’s request to bar “disparaging statements by Steve Jobs about Google’s Android operating system” at the July 30th hearing. Samsung had plans to use Job’s (now infamous) thermonuclear quote about destroying Android to show “Apple’s bias, improper motives and lack of belief in its own claims in that they are a means to an end, namely the destruction of Android.”
While Samsung has one weapon less in its case against Apple, at least it doesn’t have to be humiliated like Apple that was recently ordered to print in magazines and post up on its website that Samsung didn’t copy the iPad. What do you think of the judge’s ruling? Would it have been fair to use Steve Jobs’ quotes about Android in court?
