Samsung and Apple lawyers have presented their closing arguments to the US jury charged with following the case, as the high-profile patent battle draws towards a conclusion after several weeks of feisty exchanges.
Apple lawyer Harold McElhinny reiterated the company's argument that Samsung's designs radically changed following the original iPhone's launch, proving the Korean firm was influenced by the device.
"If you want to find out what really happened, if you want to see the truth, you need to make a chronology," AllThingsDigital reported him saying.
"They were copying the world's most successful product."
McElhinny went on to claim that Samsung's own correspondence and corporate documents prove that the company "slavishly copied" Apple's designs, causing roughly $2.5bn in damages to Apple sales.
"There is no question that Samsung's phones are substantially similar in design to the iPhone," McElhinny said.
"And no ordinary observer could detect the difference in their overall appearance... they sat with the iPhone and copied every detail, feature by feature."
Samsung's legal team responded to Apple's closing attack by again accusing the iPhone maker of using legal wizardry to stifle competition in smartphone and tablet markets.
"Apple's asking for what it is not entitled to," said Samsung lawyer Charles Verhoeven. "Rather than competing in the marketplace, they are trying to win in the courtroom."
Verhoeven went on to question Apple's damages figures and its claim that Samsung products caused confusion within the market.
"So Apple is here seeking $2bn in damages for what? That little ornamentation on the screen. It's amazing, really. Apple thinks it's entitled to have a monopoly on a rounded rectangle with a touchscreen," he said.
"Apple's damages numbers are not reasonable [...] Apple didn't invent touchscreen. Apple didn't invent the rectangular smartphone with rounded corners. And the intellectual property it is asserting in this case is not worth the money Apple is asking for."
The statements come after the second round of Samsung, Apple US peace talks failed, leaving the final ruling in the hands of the court's jury.
Samsung and Apple's patent war has since escalated and gone global, with the two currently embroiled in 50 patent lawsuits across 10 countries.
