Samsung requests peek into iOS source code in legal battle
Samsung has used a crafty legal maneuver in an attempt to gain access to Apple's iOS source code, claiming that -- after suing Apple in South Korea for allegedly infringing on one of its patents -- it will need to see the source code in order to verify that the infringement took place. While in most courts this would be called a "fishing expedition," Samsung is on home territory in South Korean courts, where it scored its only significant patent victory against Apple in its ongoing legal complaints.
