Turnabout in Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co.?

In this odd litigation wherein Apple is suing its biggest supplier, Samsung has asked to see future Apple products, making the argument that it must see the iPhone and iPad models under development to "evaluate whether a likelihood of confusion exists."

Needless to say, Apple objected: "A preliminary injunction motion will be based on Apple’s current intellectual property rights, not on future products. Because Apple’s future products have no relevance to a preliminary injunction motion, we reject your request that Apple provide samples of such future products."
