You’re all no doubt familiar with the complaint Apple has filed against Samsung in the US, essentially claiming that the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S (among others) have ripped off the iPad and iPhone.
The case has led to increasingly ridiculous claims and counter-claims, such as Samsung’s request to see the iPhone 5 and iPad 3. Unsurprisingly, that request was rejected.
Now Samsung has brought the fight to the UK, with a spanking new lawsuit filed in the High Court in London this week. That’s in addition to a suit filed in the US seeking to block the import of Apple devices. Fantastic.
Apple is no stranger to lawsuits. As well as scrapping with Samsung in the States, South Korea and now the UK, it’s embroiled in a feud with Amazon and Microsoft over use of the term “App Store”.
And the Californians recently settled a patent dispute with Nokia, dating back to 2009. “We are very pleased to have Apple join the growing number of Nokia licensees,” beamed Elop.
