Apple Wants Android Source Code in Battle Against Samsung
Apple has asked the judge overseeing one of its patent-related lawsuits against Samsung to provide it with access to the Android source code from Google. According to Apple, Android "provides much of the accused functionality" in Samsung's infringing products. Apple believes it should have access to that data in order to separate which company's software provides which functions in Samsung's smartphones. Google says that Apple made a strategic decision to leave Google out of this particular lawsuit. As a third party, Google isn't entitled to the same protections that Samsung is. Google thinks providing this info to Apple would provide for future discovery and other details that it wouldn't normally receive. The judge has yet to make a decision on the matter.
Android source code.
Why doesn't Apple download the source code them self?
What I don't get is Android source code has more to do with Google, and nothing to do with Samsung!
Quid Pro Quo
Crimony....Apple's demands are getting more and more absurd.....it won't help......Apple keeps falling behind in the smartphone race.
