Local Chinese manufacturers, experts at copying major brands of the world, have confirmed that Samsung didn’t copy Apple.
“We know a to z of copying and we can confirm that Samsung and Apple are different products,” Ko Pi Ling, a manufacturer producing fake iPhones and Samsung Galaxy handsets claimed. Many other copycats claim that while copying both the products, they didn’t find huge similarity between them.
“Why would we waste our time on copying Samsung if it were already a copy?” Ling argued and giving a clean chit to Samsung in the patent infringement case.
However there are a few who disagree, like Chu Ming, who recently fired a dozen workers of his firm working on copying Samsung.
“Clearly these guys were pretending to work,” Ming said, “These guys had already copied Apple and still took a few weeks to work on a formula to copy Samsung.”
But there are very few like Ming, who are willing to trust the US court’s decision that fined Samsung for copying Apple.
