Samsung’s Chief Product Officer Kevin Packingham has been complaining that Apple is being “unreasonable” in the ongoing Apple versus Samsung patent case.

Apple is alleging Samsung copied its iPhone and iPad designs when Samsung designed its current Galaxy smartphones and tablets.

Packingham told Wired that he thinks: “It is unreasonable that we’re fighting over rectangles, that that’s being considered as an infringement.”

Samsung’s CPO claimed that Samsung is defending itself against claims that are “defying common sense”.

“We’re all scratching our heads and saying, ‘How is this possible that we’re actually having an industry-level debate and trying to stifle competition?’” Packingham told Wired.

“Consumers want rectangles and we’re fighting over whether you can deliver a product in the shape of a rectangle.”

The Apple vs Samsung trial began yesterday in California.
