Google’s Android key to latest Apple-Samsung trial

The latest Apple-Samsung trial is scheduled to start today, and both the New York Times and Wall Street Journal report that Google’s Android operating system will be in the crosshairs. While Samsung is claiming Apple violated two of its patents, Apple is seeking about $2 billion in damages for the violation of five of its own mobile software patents. Samsung claims that features from four of the affected patents were licensed as part of Android, which Google worked on before Apple filed the patents. If Apple wins, Google could have to make significant changes to Android. Apple is also seeking $40 per infringing Samsung device sold in the United States.
