Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) To Add 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.
