No seriously, read this article then go file your lawsuit.

Back on topic. Whether or not it's legal isn't really a decision I feel any of us can make, as i'm sure the judge knew completely what he was doing. Assuming it's illegal, i'm sure Samsung will gladly use their legal resources to fight it, assuming it's not... what's the issue? The guy isn't involved in the lawsuits any longer, and they'd have to literally show proof he had prior knowledge of his employment with Samsung before it would ever hold up in court.

Its probably legal but the shady side of law. Its not like Samsung is exactly known for its ethical business practices outside of ripping off Apple designs:

I mean this is endless and all different years. Samsung is a rogue corporation who gives little cares about the welfare of the international business model. Its really sad that they profit off the sales pitch that "hey look at stupid Apple guys are - don't be stupid buy Samsung"
Seriously Samsung loyalists have no shame. Pathetic really. Oh well it works.

*cough* "Hi, I'm a PC." "Hi, I'm a Mac."

Looks like Samsung took a page out of Apple's marketing books. But your right, it does work. biggrin.gif

Screw all the news articles and youtube videos I just posted! I like Samsung and I want to get my pitchfork against Apple NOW!

They were attacking the consumers by comparing the PC (and by association PC owners) to a nerdy guy with a pocket protector versus a Mac (and by association Mac owners) to a hip cool kid. Is it really so hard to look beyond the obvious? Do you really not see that they are not only drawing a comparison between the products, but also between the people that own the products?

As a note (not like it matters though) I don't own any Samsung products, this isn't a case of me and my "pitchfork" attacking Apple. I just think it should be pointed out that while Apple's adds were far more subtle than that of Samsung they were *both* commentary on not only the products themselves, but the people that purchase them.

Cleaned and reopened. Okay, the name calling stops now. Respect one another and the rules. Otherwise, I'll be forced to issue warnings and infractions.

Thanks, that was an interesting read not my style to sue, will probably earn less in life...

I agree with you, people will get away with what they can. I also think the judge knew what he was doing, that can mean different things to different people. What can be proven is a whole different story.
