Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) Vs Samsung: What’s Going On There Now?

The patents war between Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung continues.

A U.S. court in San Jose allowed the Korean company to pursue its claims that the iPhone 5 had infringed on its wireless patents while it also allowed Apple in its allegations that the Samsung Galaxy Note, Galaxy SIII and the Android Jelly Bean operating system were in violation of its patents.

There are two lawsuits between the two companies in the same District court - he first one resulted in Apple being awarded $1.05 billion in damages and Samsung held guilty of violating Apple's patents.

The second lawsuit was filed by Apple in February ad alleged that the Korean handset maker's smartphones and tablet devices had infringed on eight of its patents. This was denied by Samsung which in turn accused Apple of infringing on eight of its patents and filed a cross complaint.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal on Thursday said that Samsung had acted with reasonable diligence in asking the court to allow it to add the iPhone 5 to the list of devices that it held were infringing on its patents.

He however warned Apple to "think twice before opposing similar amendments reflecting other newly released products — e.g. the iPad 4 and iPad mini — that Samsung may propose in the near future."

Both companies have been adding new devices, released by each of the companies recently, to the list that they feel have been violating their patents.

Apple is engaged in lawsuits against virtually all equipment makers, who are partnering Google and running its operating software on their devices. 


  1. Apples new moto: "Don't innovate, litigate!"

    They're beginning to act like a cornered dog.

    1. Not much they can do when a group of brain dead twits runs the company. I never liked Jobs, but I respected his visions for the company and he at least brought competition to the market. Now they have a couple money grubbing idiots who wouldn't know what innovation was if it slapped them upside the head. Here's to hoping Apple stocks hit 450 a share so the CEO can be fired.
