Apple issues Samsung complaint

03 Sep 12

Following its record patent victory over Samsung in California, Apple has filed an amended complaint in a separate case against its South Korean rivals.

Issued at the same court but in a separate case, the world’s most valuable company added two versions of both the Galaxy G III and Galaxy Note to its original patent infringement claims against a host of Samsung products.

The filing follows an original complaint in February this year, accusing 17 Samsung devices of violating utility patents owned by Apple.

With both sides still coming to terms with the fall-out from their high stakes patent case last week, where a nine member jury ruled Samsung had infringed on six of seven Apple patents, Apple issued the following amendment:

“These infringing Samsung products include the at least 21 new smartphones, media players, and tablets that Samsung has released beginning in August 2011 and continuing through August 2012.

“Specifically, Samsung has imported into, offered for sale, or sold in the United States at least the following products, each of which infringes Apple’s patent rights: the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S III – Verizon, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II Skyrocket, Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, Galaxy S II, Galaxy S II - T-Mobile, Galaxy S II - AT&T, Galaxy Nexus, Illusion, Captivate Glide, Exhibit II 4G, Stratosphere, Transform Ultra, Admire, Conquer 4G, and Dart smartphones, the Galaxy Player 4.0 and Galaxy Player 5.0 media players, and the Galaxy Note 10.1, Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablets.”

Apple claims it is suffering as a result of Samsung’s alleged infringements as, according to Apple, the South Korean company Samsung has "continued to flood the market with copycat products and continued to release new infringing products, including its current flagship device, the Galaxy S III."
