Today, the federal district court for San Jose, California heard opening arguments in Apple v. Samsung which is their second major trial for patent infringement. Apple is now seeking Samsung pay $2 billion for infringement of five U.S. patents. Aggressive lawyering, the hyperbole - we could have sued on 50 patents and the judge has instructed you ... (when Judge Koh hadn't), an embarrassing "Holy war" email, each companies unabated ambition to be #1, and the billions at stake suggest this trial (like the first trial) will go to judgment.
