Apple Looks To Add New Samsung Galaxy Tablets and Smartphones To Patent Suit

Just because a jury decided that Samsung owes Apple over a billion dollars as a result of the latter’s patent suit against the former doesn’t mean Apple is sated. According to a Reuters report, the Cupertino company is asking a U.S. District Court judge in San Jose to add several additional Samsung devices to the list of smartphones and tablets that allegedly infringe on its patents to a different lawsuit, filed in February.

Apple believes that Samsung illegally used patents that pertain to UI, style, and technological aspects in many of its devices. Now, Apple is trying to amend its current complaint to include more Samsung products that it believes infringe on its patents, including Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Rugby Pro, and Galaxy III Mini (which may or may not eventually land in the U.S.).

Thus continues the bitter legal battle between the two companies, which is a costly front in the wide-ranging war for the mobile market.

«Thus continues the bitter legal battle between the two companies, which is a costly front in the wide-ranging war for the mobile market.» Costly, indeed, for users, who are the ones who in the end have to shell out for all those lawyers' fees and who, not least, are deprived of the right to choose in a well-regulated market the product that best meets their needs....


PS : Seth, why am I being denied permission to comment on your recent article on the legality or otherwise of blocking advertising ?...

Do you think they have a case? I don't know all the details, but seems like every time a competitor's product takes off, Apple suddenly decides it's infringing on its patents.

mhenriday, we're working on the issues. The server move wasn't kind to us and we have a forum-wider post permission issue as well as possibly Facebook/Twitter login problems. :( Developer is on it soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!
