SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Apple Inc. has started making its case to a jury that a bitter rival owes it billions of dollars for copying its iPhones and iPads.
Apple's lead lawyer Harold McElhinny began his opening statements Tuesday to a jury of 10 people who will decide the closely watched patent trial between the Cupertino-based company and Samsung Electronics Inc.
Apple alleges in a lawsuit filed last year that Samsung's smartphones and computer pads are illegal knockoffs of its products.
Samsung denies the claim and has countered that it's Apple that's doing the stealing. Samsung is demanding its own damages.
