Judge likely to sanction Samsung lawyers Posted on Monday, November 11th, 2013 at 7:51 am. PT Written by Jim Dalrymple The only thing scummier than Samsung are its lawyers. satcomer This does not surprise anyone who has ever been to South Korea in the last 25 years. marv08 While I am normally not a friend of such blanket statements… Having lived and worked there for more than two years (1999-2001), I have to agree. Most terrible place I have been to, and I have been to quite a few. Mother Hydra Agreed, their rampant corruption is a matter of national pride. the Ugly Truth What “sanction” would be “motivating” enough to ensure these parasites learn their lesson? I figure…its gonna be only a slap on the pinky…for these douchebag$ Mother Hydra Sadly we can’t get some sort of ITC ruling banning all their products from sale. That is what SHOULD happen but whatever. the Ugly Truth IMHO, “banning” isn’t enough of a deterrent in this case as there are 2 separate issues at play… Samsungs’ lawyers, clearly, leaked the info. What punishment would be enough to send a message to the rest that if you get caught…you will pay dearly? The phones in question are “has beens”; “work arounds” are usually the solution. However, if the system truly has “teeth”, the award should be…say, half of Samsungs’ marketing budget! Until then, this circus will continue…as there is no meaningful “pain” to the offender.
