Apple Inc. (AAPL) Seeks More Samsung Products To Patent Lawsuit

Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) has reportedly asked a federal court to include 6 more products to its patent violation case against Samsung Electronics Co. the 6 products includes Galaxy Note II.

The lawsuit is among the two patent infringement cases that are pending in the US District Court in San Jose that were filed by Apple against Samsung. A previous lawsuit by Apple associated with several patents had led to a jury verdict amounting to $1.05 billion against Samsung on 24th August of 2012.

Apple is also planning to include the Samsung Galaxy S III that runs on the latest Android Jelly Bean OS, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, the Samsung Galaxy S III Mini, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wi-Fi and the Samsung Rugby Pro to the litigation, as per a court petition on Friday.

The company has mentioned in the filing that Apple has acted promptly and thoroughly to decide that the recently launched products do violate many of the similar claims that are already asserted by Apple.

Representatives of Samsung did not reply to requests for comment right away.

Apple has filed another case in the month of February, accusing Samsung that it has infringed as many as 8 of its patents in Samsung smartphone and tablet products.

Apple’s motion emphasizes that all of the aforementioned Samsung products or upgrades were introduced after the 5th generation iPod touch, which Samsung wishes to add to the lawsuit. This is likely to make it difficult for Samsung to add the 5th generation iPod touch while refusing Apple’s recent-most proposed additions as inappropriate.

Samsung, however, has denied patent infringement and has filed a cross-complaint accusing that Apple’s iPad and iPhone have infringed its patents.

On 15th Novemeber, a US judge gas let Samsung to proceed with its accusations that the iPhone 5 also infringes its patents.


  1. Welcome to the new Apple, where we patent the wheel and then sue everyone who makes a car.
    Innovation be damned. Why bother when you can keep churning the same thing every year, just making it a bit shinier, and when the competition actually makes (huge) inroads into every single market segment you're in as a result, just sue them. Oh, and do so in your own back yard because anywhere else in the world, where there are objective people, you wouldn't win any of the lawsuits in a million years.

    Sad. Steve Jobs would be turning over in his grave if he knew what his company turned into, and the inevitable decline it's facing (if not there already).

  2. How Apple "innovates"

    Apple - We need moar pixels on our displays. Tell Samsung or LG to add moar pixels to make it moar good.

    Samsung/LG - add more pixels to display, spending billions in R&D


  3. Apple's best days are finished. Blackberry 10 WILL BE the new innovation to follow. Look at RIM and Apple charts last 3 months, money is moving out of Apple and into RIM, follow the money and enjoy the ride up to $80+ with RIM within 24 months.

  4. This is becoming a little ridiculous now!!!!! But then again they know they have a good chance of winning in US courts.
    "anywhere else in the world, where there are objective people, you wouldn't win any of the lawsuits in a million years."
    I couldn't have said it any better.

    Why the F*^&% can't Apple just make products like everyone else!!!!! Let the customers decide what they like best. End of story!

  5. If it wasn't for Apple you would all be using Blackberries with QWERTY hard keyboards. If you don't allow an innovator to protect their inventions for a while, then people would stop bothering to innovate.

    It took Apple 2-3 years, money, blood, sweat and tears, not to mention substantial risk to develop the iPhone. It took Samsung 3 months to copy it and become the dominant smartphone seller. Is that fair? If you invented a working nuclear fusion reactor, would be ok with Samsung taking your work and selling it as their own? Apple should be allowed to reap the benefits of their work for 10 years. After that make it available to everyone.
