SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A jury has been seated to rule on the legal battle between Apple and Samsung. And lawyers for both sides are to deliver opening arguments Tuesday morning in San Francisco.

Apple has claimed Samsung's smartphones and computer tablets are illegal rip-offs of the iPhone and the iPad.

In a suit filed last year, Apple is demanding $2.5 billion in damages. If it wins, the award would dwarf the largest verdict in a patent case to date.

For its part, Samsung claims it's Apple that's doing the stealing - and that some of the technology at issue has been around for a long while.
