Samsung wants iOS source code, carrier contracts, to depose Jony Ive,
The demands and counter-demands in Apple vs. Samsung are reaching tragically comedic, or comedically tragic levels:
In Federal court today Samsung counsel Cynthia Cochrane said her client would need the source code for the iPhone 4S and agreements Apple had with major carriers Vodafone, Telstra and Optus in order to make a legal case for a ban before the court.
Unlike Google's Android OS, which is openy-source, Apple's iOS is proprietary, though you gotta love the gumption of a company accused of copy-catting Apple to the best of their ability requesting the ability to copy it better. They also want to depose Apple SVP of Design, Jony Ive, and other "iPhone inventors". What's next, Phil Schiller's inseam measurements? Tim Cook's birthday cards? Samsung's non-Apple influenced design team member?
Maybe call in the big guns?
