    Samsung vs. Apple Updated Lawsuit List With Added Devices


    At the beginning of the month, a news story broke that both Apple and Samsung were trying to have more devices retroactively added to their ongoing patent infringement lawsuits. The judge in the matter eventually determined that it would be better for the courts and the system to allow this, rather than gum of the court system with multiple lawsuits from the companies. At that time Samsung wanted to have the Apple iPhone 5 added to their lawsuit list, while Apple wanted to add the Samsung Galaxy Note, the U.S.-version of the Galaxy S III, and the Jelly Bean OS to their list.

    We didn't report it at that time for two reasons. One, we wanted to give you guys a holiday break from all the Apple vs. Samsung patent wars. Two, we anticipated that both companies would want to add even more "potentially offending" devices to their lists. While the first reason we held off is debatable, it turns out we were right about the second reason. Since then, both companies have added even more devices to the patent infringement case, and the list continues to grow like some gelatinous ooze monster devouring a small rural American town. In fact, Apple just filed a motion to add even more to their lawsuit than previously in the month.

    Here's the list of what has been added to both lawsuits.

    Samsung added:
    1. iPhone 5
    2. iPad Mini

    Apple added:
    1. Galaxy Note
    2. Jelly Bean operating system in relation to the Galaxy Nexus
    3. U.S.-version of the Galaxy S III
    4. Galaxy Note II
    5. Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi
    6. Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
    7. Rugby Pro
    8. Galaxy S III Mini

    And, the vehemence continues unabated...

    Why beat around the bush? Each company should just add every device the other has ever made and be done with it.

    Ugh... I really wish this would either stop or Samsung would actually win a few injunctions just to turn the tables some.

    Patent Law reform needs to happen right now, too many trolls out there.

    Re: Samsung vs. Apple Updated Lawsuit List With Added Devices

    Samsung has won some in Europe, idk if it will hold any meaning here.

    I think the courts should have a clear definition of a frivolous lawsuit and dismiss them before they even come to trial..

    A lawsuit over a shape for example, or over a patent for tech that is "in the works' would be another example.

    Making the loser pay for the winner's legal fees would cut out almost all the frivolous lawsuits.

    That was one of the main points of the tort reform movement a number of years ago here in the US....and naturally that was lobbied heavily against by the trial lawyer associations.

    Still don't see why Samsung is on the hook for Jelly Bean, especially on the GNex which is a pure Google OS that's untouched by Sammy.
