Motorola Snap Samsung Below the Belt on YouTube

Hey, if you can't beat'em, break'em. That's exactly what Motorola did in a 15-second Motorola owned spoofed video showed up on YouTube. The video showed a woman snapping a Samsung's 6.9 millimeter-thick Ultra mobile phone in half. Then at the end of the video, the text read "Samsung handset, easy to break at one try!" Spoof, leak or whatever, this is dirty by all means. Motorola had the video yanked, since it was used without permission. The company claims it was created as a spoof, not as an official Motorola video and was not intended for distribution; that's their story and they're sticking to it.

The phone was mucked with prior to the recording, and wouldn't break that easily. Motorola hurt Samsung's feeling and may even damage the company's reputation so legal actions may come from this.
