A closely watched trial between Apple and Samsung gets underway in federal court Monday. Apple filed a $2.5 billion lawsuit against Samsung last year, claiming that the South Korean company's tablets and smartphones are knockoffs of iPads and iPhones. This is just the latest legal battle between the two tech giants over product design in the U.S. and abroad. Last month, a U.S. district judge ordered Samsung to stop selling its Galaxy 10.1 tablets in the U.S. pending the outcome of the trial, but banned Apple's legal team from informing jurors of the ban.
