Apple Lawsuits Against Samsung in the UK

Apple has now sued Samsung for patent infringement in the British High Courts. Samsung claims that Apple’s filing is in response to an action that Samsung filed with the UK’s High Court back in June. The patents mentioned were not revealed in the two suits between the two companies in UK.

The two companies have been trading patent infringement accusations since April, when Apple filed suit against Samsung in a Northern Californian court.

Apple was recently awarded a preliminary ban on Samsung selling Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets in Germany during a trial. It was a big victory in its patent infringement battle against Samsung Electronics. Samsung is not allowed to sell Galaxy tablet in the European Union except the Netherlands.

Apple Samsung Lawsuit in UK

Apple and Samsung’s legal disputes have spread to more than 20 countries and actually resulted in a temporary Europe-wide ban of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Both companies say the other violates its patents for smartphones and tablets. The companies have sued each other in the U.S., Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Korea, Italy, France, Australia, and the UK.

Apple is the top smartphone and tablet seller around the world, as rivals aggressively rush into the smartphone and tablet marker, it is only the first step Apple has taken in order to keep apple’s iPad dominace and iPhone dominace. It’s widely believed that Apple is indirectly targeting Google and Android with its suit. It is because many of its competitors have adopted Google Android on their devices, including Samsung Galaxy Tab, Motorola Xoom, etc.

On the one hand, the companies compete with each other in the mobile-device market, the Galaxy tab is one of the only staunch competitors to the iPad. On the other hand, Samsung supplies memory chips to Apple, Samsung Electronics Co., is the world’s largest maker of computer memory chips.

The serials legal disputes would probably lead to ugly divorce. What would this ugly divorce bring to each other? How will the UK courts handle the legal dispute between the two mobile technology giants? If UK courts side with Apple, will Apple go ahead and file against Google? Stay tuned.

    This is really a stupid action by a technology leader. Apple should improve and innovate its products to maintain its position rather going for such immature battles. Perhaps Apple should sue against all the apple farmers of the world who are growing and selling this fruit by using their brand name :)
