Apple is fighting multipleÂ legal battlesÂ with Samsung, claiming Samsung copied both the iPad and iPhone. But Samsungâ€™s lawyers are fighting back, accusing Apple of falsely manipulating graphics showing similarities between the Samsung Galaxy S smartphone and the iPhone 3G.
Dutch publicationÂ WebWereldÂ (translation) reports thatÂ AppleÂ submitted a side-by-side graphic to a Dutch court at the Hague of theÂ iPhoneÂ 3G next to the Samsung Galaxy S, with Appleâ€™s lawyers calling the graphic â€œan example of the similarity relevant to copyrights.â€
But the picture showed the two smartphones exactly the same size. Thatâ€™s whereÂ Samsungâ€˜s lawyers called foul and accused Apple of distorting Samsungâ€™s devices to look more Apple-like. In reality, the two smartphones are not the same size â€” the Galaxy S is 122.4mm tall versus the iPhone 3Gâ€™s 115.5mm height.
