If you are a mobile technology fan, you probably already know that Apple sued Samsung back in April for patent infringements, stating that the Korean manufacturer had knowingly copied the iPhone/iPad designs.
Today marks the deadline set by court for Samsung to surrender a bunch of its devices including the Galaxy S II, Galaxy Tab 8.9, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Infuse 4G, and Droid Charge along with packaging and promotional inserts to Apple.
Well take a seat and read this: Apple has just amended its original complaint against the Korean manufacturer, and has increased the number of devices that they claim are infringing on the patents from 14 to 28. Apple says that the Infuse 4G, Droid Charge , Nexus S 4G, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, sidekick 4G (really?) and many other are all guilty of copycatting! They threw in three utility patents and two more design patents, making a total of eight and five respectively.
Apple stressed its displeasure with the Korean manufacturer and used some really strong language stating that Samsung “has been even bolder” than other competitors at copying their products and had created “products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple’s products to capitalize on Apple’s success.”
What’s next Apple? Suing everyone who uses the word “apple”because it contributed to your success? I call this greed!
