Patents Expert Witnesses & Apple v. Samsung

Sydney Federal Court Judge Annabelle Claire Benne warned Samsung counsel Katrina Howard regarding the accusation that Apple inappropriately influenced patent expert witnesses. Technology expert Aruna Seneviratne, Director of the Australian Technology Park Laboratory of NICTA, said Apple lawyers pointed out a typographical error in his report and he was not pressured by Apple.

Apple claims that Samsung copied designs and features from the iPhone while Samsung accuses Apple of violating their wireless technology patents.
