A smart judge would throw the case out for falsified visual evidence in a case where one company is suing the other over the look of a product. Especially so in the Case where Apple altered the aspect ratio of the Samsung product to closely match that of the Ipad. There is absolutely no valid or serious argument that can be made for such a giant technology company to "accidentally" alter evidence in such a way, it would simply be laughable to suggest it wasn't on purpose.
I have no idea how Apple gets such special treatment in courts. If I were suing a major company like, lets say Nokia, over the "look and feel" of their product to something I designed and marketed myself, and I had altered such visual evidence, they would jump all over me, call me a scam artist patent troll and throw my case out in seconds of it coming to light. Heck, I might even see jail time for falsifying evidence.
Apple on the other hand, somehow has a slim chance of pulling this off. You just never know when it comes to Apple.
Sorry to Apple fans and fanboys for the Apple hate, but c'mon... C'MON!

What I meant about "ethics" was human trafficking, slavery, etc. Not business ethics, because nearly every business breaks those. No company is clean.
If you want to be a "righteous consumer" who is against greed and all the evils of this world, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything to buy!
I don't approve of Apple's doings, in fact I condemn them. But I'm not going to stand around and pretend like every other company doesn't do it.
Well, you gotta draw the line somewhere at least... It's just that Apple seems to be a bigger offender of such tings more often than others... It's not like we pick on Apple just for fun. There's a reason people come to hate Apple, and for most, I see it as justified.Edited by Fuell - 8/19/11 at 8:44am
