Focus Turns to Samsung’s Patents at Trial

Before Monday, the focus of the latest Apple and Samsung patent trial was whether Samsung copied Apple. But on Monday, Samsung said Apple has done some copying of its own — including a method for transmitting video over wireless devices.To make their point, Samsung’s lawyers put Dan Schonfeld, a computer engineering professor of University of Illinois at Chicago, on the stand. Mr. Schonfeld showed a video of an iPhone doing a FaceTime call over a cellular network, where the video is captured and then compressed before it is sent to the recipient — a method that he said was described in a Samsung patent.
