The legal battle between Samsung and Apple keeps getting hotter – and frankly more brutal – by the day. According to Webwereld, Apple is now going after the entire Galaxy range in Europe.
That’s apparently the gist of a complaint filed by Apple in the Netherlands. An injunction would ban the sale and import of the devices in question, and since the Netherlands is Europe’s entry point, the case could affect the entire continent.
The complaint was filed at the Hague, and names the Samsung Galaxy Tab and Samsung Galaxy S II among others. It reads: "Apple demands that Samsung and its subsidiaries send a “letter of request” to all their European clients to recall all infringing products from stock “within 14 days” and offer compensation of the purchase price as well as transport costs.
"Apple demands that Samsung’s letter should include a statement saying that if clients don’t comply, that they themselves violate Apple’s intellectual property rights."
The Europe-wide injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was recently lifted, pending Samsung’s appeal on August 25.
A ruling on the Dutch case will take place on September 15.
