Samsung to File Injunction Against Apple
Samsung and Apple have been involved in court battles for a while now. Apple first went after Samsung because of the Galaxy Tablet and Samsung phones. Apple claims that Sumsung copied the iPhone and iPad technology. Now, Samsung is going after Apple and it’s new iPhone 4S.
According to CNN:
Samsung Electronics announced plans Wednesday to file preliminary injunction motions in Paris and Milan, Italy, to block the sale of Apple’s iPhone 4S there.
Samsung is accusing Apple of two patent infringement, both dealing with wireless telecommunications technology.
It did not rule out filing preliminary injunctions in other countries as well.
The latest accusation Wednesday deal with the Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) standards for 3G mobile handsets.
“Apple has continued to flagrantly violate our intellectual property rights and free ride on our technology, and we will steadfastly protect our intellectual property,” Samsung said in a statement.
Worldwide, millions of mobile phones carry CDMA technology while others carry GSM.
By incorporating both in its new iPhone 4S, Apple said it intends for it to be a “world phone,” working on any mobile network around the world.
I don’t expect to see any delay of the iPhone 4S here in the United States. If anything, these two companies are just driving each other to come up with better products. Or as they would say, copycat products.
