Samsung claims common sense will win the day in its US patent battle with Apple as the jury for the high-profile case has now been sworn in.
Samsung argued that the jury will not be convinced by the iPad maker's attempt to stifle competition in the smartphone and tablet markets, in a statement sent to V3 on Tuesday.
"We trust that the jurors in this trial will agree that no company should have a monopoly over rectangular phones with rounded corners and large display screens," read Samsung's statement.
"[We trust] that consumers are not deceived when they purchase Samsung products into believing that they are made by Apple, which is the standard for infringement."
The Samsung vs Apple jury was selected on Monday. It includes seven men and three women from a variety of occupations including a store operations manager for a cycling retailer, a systems engineer and a benefits and payroll manager who works with start-ups.
The trial was confirmed earlier in July after peace talks between Apple's chief executive Tim Cook and top Samsung executives came to a standstill, with neither party being able to agree a resolution.
"While we would have preferred to settle our differences through negotiation, we look forward to the opportunity to present our case to the jury," Samsung added in its statement.
Apple renewed its all-out assault following the peace talks failure claiming Samsung owes it $2.5bn in damages.
The two companies' ongoing patent war began in 2011 after Apple accused Samsung of "slavishly copying" Apple iPad designs with its Galaxy tablets. Samsung subsequently responded to the accusation with its own slew of patent infringement claims.
Samsung reiterated its belief that Apple's claims are bogus and that it is using its patents to undermine competition in the smartphone and tablet market.
"Patent law was never intended to give a company a monopoly over an entire market," it said in the statement sent to V3.
"Samsung wants to compete with Apple, not to stifle competition; to offer more choices to consumers, not to limit their ability to buy the product they want at a price they can afford."
