    Default Apple Looks to 'Blur' Out Samsung in Courtroom Showdown


    Apple leaves no stone unturned when preparing for battle with a foe in a court of law.

    That much is clear in Apple's looming patent infringement showdown with Samsung. According to new revelations contained within Apple's most recent courtoom filings, the iDevice maker is going to elaborate extents to make sure jurors aren't swayed by the Samsung brand.

    Discovered by Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents, Apple will bring a motion for "[o]bscuring the 'Samsung' logo on the court's video display for jurors." You see, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California uses Samsung equipment in the courtroom facilities. Apple doesn't want the presence of Samsung products to weigh on the minds of jurors.

    "At first sight, this may seem very funny," says Mueller - and intellectual property activist-turned-analyst - "but I actually understand why Apple would make this request: at a conscious level, it can show to jurors that Samsung actually contributes technology to the U.S. government, and at a subconscious level, it creates the impression of the court being Samsung territory."

    The trial involving Samsung and Apple is scheduled to begin on July 30th.

    He's right guys, you really aren't supposed to have a camera of any kind in the courthouse. It's illegal. Some courthouses just overlook it sometimes...as for the "special" phone that doesn't have a camera, blackberry offers their devices without a camera.
