Subject : Apple Sues Samsung over Smartphone Patent   
Date 2011-06-29 Visit 7048

Apple filed a lawsuit with a Seoul court claiming Samsung Electronics copied the look and feel of its iPhone smartphones.

This is the latest in a series of legal skirmishes that underscore the increasingly high stakes in the mobile computing market.

“We have filed a lawsuit against Samsung with the Seoul Central District Court,” Steve Park, a spokesman for Apple Korea, told Dow Jones Newswires.

In a separate statement, Apple Korea said, “It’s no coincidence that Samsung‘s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging. This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.”

In response, Samsung said that Apple‘s latest legal action would not affect its stance over the patent lawsuit.

“We will continue to actively defend and protect our intellectual property and to ensure our continued innovation and growth in the mobile communication business,” Samsung said in a statement.
