    [Updated] Apple Brings Lawsuit Against Samsung


    [Update]: Samsung vows to fight Apple with countersuit. Samsung suspects that Apple has been violating several of Samsung's wireless patents. Samsung issued a statement reading, “Samsung will respond actively to this legal action taken against us through appropriate legal measures to protect our intellectual property.” Source: Android.net via GoogleNews

    9to5 Mac reports today on a Wall Street Journal story that says that Apple is suing Samsung over the similarity of its Galaxy series of phones and tablets to the iPhone and iPad. The lawsuit, which was filed last Friday, actually goes as far as to say that Samsung has chosen to “slavishly” copy Apple’s technology, design and style rather than developing its own unique technology and style. Ouch! Reuters quotes Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet as saying “This kind of blatant copying is wrong.”

    As 9to5 Mac points out, this lawsuit is quite surprising considering that Samsung supplies flash components for many Apple products including the iPhone and iPad. The business relationship between the two companies is still very much ongoing, with Apple recently opting to install Samsung components in its new MacBook Air computers, a contract that had previously been held by Toshiba. In fact, 9to5 Mac points out, Samsung is even responsible for making part of Apple’s A4 and A5 chips that are used in the iPhone and iPad, and there has also been recent talk of Apple and Samsung collaborating on new Super PLS screens for future devices. So far Samsung has made no comment on the matter.

    Yea I had a similar thought. The title of this news post was confusing to me. Rafik1 beat me to the punch while I was logging in to reply though lol.

    Samsung should be sued on touchwiz alone. And because the contrast is way off on the AMOLED line of screens.

    Same here. He should probably edit the title. I read the article yesterday about the lawsuit and then saw this headline and thought "wow they dropped it already? Maybe they're not as idiotic as I thought." But, of course that isn't the case
