Apple Sues Samsung Over Galaxy Devices
Apr 18, 2011, 2:58 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Apple filed a fresh new lawsuit today against competitor (and business partner) Samsung. In the lawsuit, Apple alleges that Samsung's line of Galaxy Android handsets and tablets mimic the iPhone and iPad. Part of the lawsuit explains, "Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products." The Galaxy S, for example, looks similar to the iPhone 3G/3GS, and the 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab shown at the recent CTIA trade show resembles the basic look of Apple's iPad. Apple is a major customer of Samsung, and uses its components in many of its own products. Apple's terms weren't made public.
