A few days ago, we reported about Samsung demanding that Apple come transparent with the designs of its future products. In retaliation, the iPad manufacturer approached the District Court of California, and filed a motion against Samsung. Apple also requested the District Court of California to deny Samsung’s requests.
Now, it so seems that the Court saw more merit in Apple’s claims, and steered the judgment in their favor. According to the judgment, Samsung has been denied the permission to peek into Apple’s stash of prototypes to gain confirmation. The judgment further added that Samsung’s open ways of proceeding with product releases, didn’t quite fit its claims of product secrecy. This in contrast with Apple’s well guarded trade secrets gave Samsung the final setback.
