Apple Inc.’s lawyer told a jury at a $2 billion trial that the Samsung Electronics Co., according to Bloomberg News, copied the iPhone maker on “feature after feature” over several years.

Apple claims 10 Samsung devices, including the Galaxy S3, infringe five of its patents. According to a report by Bloomberg News, The patents cover a range of user-interface designs for the iOS software that powers iPhones and iPads, including features like the slide-to-unlock function, automatic spelling corrections, and the ability for a user to make a call by clicking on a phone number within a web page or e-mail instead of having to dial it separately. Samsung Electronics Co. contends that four Apple devices, including the iPhone 5 and versions of the iPod, infringe two of its patents.


Attorney Harold McElhinny said that in 2007, Apple introduced the iPhone, and Samsung had only 5 percent of the U.S. mobile handset market and did not even offer a touch smartphone.

“You can’t copy something from the iPhone if it’s not in the iPhone,” A lawyer for Samsung, Bill Price, said to the jurors. He argued that according to Bloomberg news, that “Samsung didn’t copy it, Google didn’t copy it,” Price said. “You can’t copy it if it isn’t there.” Samsung called several Google engineers as witnesses.

It has been reported that Apple Inc. wants the Suwon, South Korea-based Company, Samsung, to pay as much as $40 for each phone that was sold that uses the infringing technology, for a total of $2.19 billion.
