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.

    You know.. my boss got an Mac airbook and he paid like 1500$ for it. I showed him my lenovo laptop with a intel 320 ssd/Nvidia 680M, and let him use it. He took the mac back and got a lenovo. One down... millions to go.

    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.

    Why are they waiting so long. So if this was Samsung being sued by apple the trial would be tomorrow to get Samsung phones off the shelf as soon as possible, but since it's Samsung suing Apple they wait till 2014 when the iPhone 5 is no longer in production.

    A friend of mine damaged his Mac laptop's screen, and asked me if it was repairable. Typically, yes, but not for Apple's stuff...

    Lawsuits typically require hundreds or thousands of emails and sheets of papers before the fun even begins.

    It's paper warfare.
