Apple wishes to include evidence that Samsung’s work around, designed to stop its infringement of Apple’s ‘pinch-to-zoom’ patent, “demonstrates continuing infringement of the ’915 patent”.
Professor Karan Singh reviewed Samsung’s modified code on behalf of Apple.
In a filing on 20 November, Apple claimed: “Dr. Singh exposed the fiction in [Samsung expert] Mr. Gray’s declaration that dressing up infringing code in different clothing renders it non-infringing”.
In a later filing Apple said that Dr. Singh’s declaration showed “that Samsung’s ‘modified code still infringes because it distinguishes between a single input point and multiple input points.”
At the core of the ’915 patent is a distinction between a one-figure and a two-finger gesture (one finger meaning scrolling, two fingers meaning a pinch), explains Foss Patents.
Samsung is attempting to stop Singh’s declaration being included in the trial.
