New York, Aug 1 (THAINDIAN NEWS) An attorney representing Apple said that Samsung did not come up with an original phone. The attorney told the jury on Tuesday that Samsung copied Apple technology that has been use to make Apple smartphones and tablets.

The attorney said that after Steve Jobs introduced the new iPhone in the year 2007 and told other rival companies to innovate or copy, Samsung decided to copy. Attorney Harold McElhinny said that Samsung had copied iPhone and iPad designs and user experiences to come up with its new gadgets.

Samsung lawyers denied the charges by the Apple attorneys. In the past, Samsung has claimed that Apple has stolen some ideas from the company. Samsung claims that the idea of the rounded rectangular design of tablets and smartphones has been in the company for years. Apple pressed the charges and filed the case against Samsung last year and is claiming that Samsung pay them 2.5 billion dollars for damages.

Apple lawyers claim that all the designs that Samsung has laid out in its plans were copied from them. Samsung defended themselves by claiming that they have been in the market for a very long time since 1991 and that Apple which came in to the market only in 2007 is the one that has copied its designs from Sony.
