More Patent Fights Between Apple and Samsung Ahead

The company said that it is likely to sue Apple over technologies used in the iPhone 5. In court filings, Samsung revealed that it will extend existing complaints and allegations of eight separate patent infringements to Apple's latest phone. The trial is not expected to start until March 2014.

In an article posted by the BBC, Samsung was quoted saying, "We have always preferred to compete in the marketplace with our innovative products, rather than in courtrooms. However, Apple continues to take aggressive legal measures that will limit market competition. Under these circumstances, we have little choice but to take the steps necessary to protect our innovations and intellectual property rights."

There is also more news that Apple's iMessage violates up to six Google patents, which Google acquired via the purchase of Motorola. An investigation by the US International Trade Commission is currently underway.

    Apple are so blind and greedy, that they can't realize how much hate will bring on them all those patents wars.
    They are becoming the most hated company ever.
    If they continue like this, even the isheep people will abandon them.
