Apple says that not only did Samsung rip off the iPhone and iPad trade dress for many of its devices but that it also stole many of Apple's graphics. Here's a comparison Apple filed in U.S. District Court.
Apple last year filed a patent suit and accused Samsung of ripping off the intellectual property behind the iPhone and iPad. Samsung countersued and alleged that Apple violated some of its patents.
This is what Apple told the court about Samsung's alleged use of Apple's icons:
"Samsung is also infringing Apple's icon trademarks by advertising and selling a wide variety of products using confusingly similar icons...The icons on these products
were intentionally designed to look like Apple's icons and infringe Apple's trademark rights."
Some of the Samsung devices that Apple says are equipped with stolen icons include Captivate; Continuum; Droid Charge; Epic 4G; Exhibit 4G; Fascinate; Galaxy
Ace; Galaxy S (i9000); Galaxy S 4G; Galaxy S II (AT&T Edition, 4G); Galaxy S II (T-Mobile
Edition); Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch; Galaxy S II Skyrocket (4G LTE); Galaxy S Showcase;
Gem; Gravity Smart; Indulge; Infuse 4G; Mesmerize; and Vibrant.
Samsung lawyers argue that the company's designers were only "inspired" by Apple's products but that their handsets are very different in important ways and that Samsung has a long history of innovation.
