Apple has filed a new lawsuit against
Samsung Electronics at the district court in
Dusseldorf, aiming at 10 models in its Galaxy family
According to the court's spokesman Peter Schutz,
Apple claims that Samsung's products look too much
like its own offerings. Apple has also combined its
filings against Samsung's tablets into one case, he
The court blocked German sales of the original version
of Samsung's 10-inch tablet in September last year,
after Apple argued that Samsung's product looked too
much like the iPad. To circumvent that ruling, Samsung
modified the appearance of the tablet to create the
Galaxy Tab 10.1N.
The smartphone case will come before the court in
August and the case against Samsung's tablets will
follow in September.
