Earlier today, we said that logo creator Susan Kare and Peter Bressler, former President of the Industrial Designers Society of America, took the stand to testify against Samsung. Bressler, who also happens to be an associate professor at the University of Pennsylvania, affirmed Apple’s assertion saying that a dozen of Samsung’s products, including the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, and Galaxy Tabs, all infringe Apple’s patents. If you haven’t been following the story, Apple is claiming patent infringement on four designs – one on the iPad, two on the iPhone, and one on iOS.
During his testimony, side-by-side comparisons were revealed including the iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S 4G. Bressler’s comment was, “It’s my opinion that this phone, the design of this phone would be considered substantially the same.” Apple lawyers also made comparisons with the iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. Bressler also pointed out a few alternative designs of the tablets as well as the purported document showing that a few Best Buy customers previously returned units of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 because they thought they were buying an iPad. Stay tuned for more updates.
