What’s that? You want to hear about more lawsuits? Fantastic.
Today brings another development in the ongoing patent-slog between Apple and Samsung. The latest reports suggest that Samsung has filed papers claiming that Apple’s iPad mini infringes eight of its technology patents. The move puts this device onto a list that appears to be lengthening daily. The list already includes devices like the latest iPod and iPad, both of which Samsung claims infringe radio signalling technologies that Samsung has patented.
Following their huge loss a couple of months ago in the courtroom, things seems to be turning around for Samsung, as this week a judge ordered Apple to disclose the financial details of its licensing deal with HTC “without delay”. That information is vital because Samsung claims it is “almost certain” that Apple’s deal with HTC involves the same patents that are disputed between Apple and Samsung. If that notion is found to be true, it could determine the outcome of the trial.
Would you like to see a fair verdict reached in court? Or would you prefer to see Apple and Samsung strike up a deal similar to Cupertino’s agreement with HTC? Leave your comments below!
