Remember when Apple and Samsung played the game “you show me yours, I’ll show you mine” legal game? Well, after they met in court regarding the copying of each other’s devices, Apple was granted permission to view Samsung’s future products. Meanwhile, Samsung started proceedings to also get a similar permission.
However, instead of revealing the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 to the South Korean giant, Apple called them “copyists” in legal documents and complained of harassment. Well, tough luck for Samsung, then, especially if they DID show Apple their future devices. Apple would rather go bankrupt than show its future wonderkids to anyone but its partners, who are sworn in regarding confidentiality.
Maybe next time?
