  • Samsung Planning Legal Action Against iPhone 5 in South Korea



    As soon as the iPhone 5 touches down in South Korea Apple is going to be met with a swath of lawsuits from Samsung according to a report by the Korea Times.

    "Just after the arrival of the iPhone 5 here, Samsung plans to take Apple to court here for its violation of Samsungs wireless technology related patents," said an anonymous Samsung senior executive to the Korea Times.

    "For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents. We will stick to a strong stance against Apple during the lingering legal fights."
    It seems the Samsung Apple divorce is nearly complete. All of Samsung's efforts to legally outwit Apple haven't proved very successful thus far. The company still is unable to sell their Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Germany. Also there currently are as many as 23 lawsuits between the two companies taking place across numerous countries. Samsung's hostile stance in Korea toward Appe seems to highlight the downward spiral into reciprocal ill will between the two companies.

    One has to wonder exactly what Samsung and their lawyers are preparing, especially considering Apple hasn't even officially announced their next phone. Why not sue Apple over the iPhone 4, or iPad? Samsung, whatever their strategy turns out to be, is at least moving into an offensive position. Apple may be the big dog in the kennel right now, but if they keep taking the legal drubbing Apple plans on dishing out, Samsung might not be able to sell their devices anywhere.

      Apple can get an injunction on Samsung tablet simply for being similar shape as iPad, why is this rediculous but that is not?
