Apple has asked a federal court to find that four
additional Samsung products, including the Galaxy S III,
infringe Apple's patents.
In February, Apple alleged that at least 17 Samsung
products infringe its patents. In a court filing made in
San Jose federal court on Friday (U.S. District Court,
Northern District of California, Apple Inc v. Samsung
Electronics Ltd, et al 12-00630,) Apple added four more
products to the list of allegedly infringing products that
have been released beginning in August 2011 and continuing
through this month.
"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a
unique Samsung style for its smartphone and tablet computer
products, Samsung has chosen to copy Apple's technology,
user interface, and innovative style," Apple said in one
Apple won a victory over Samsung last Friday in a separate
case when a jury found that the South Korean company had
copied critical features of the iPhone and iPad and awarded
the U.S. company $1.05 billion in damages.
Responding to the new suit, Samsung on Saturday accusesd
Apple of resorting to litigation in an effort to limit
consumer choice. The S. Korean company added it would
continue to contest the new case.
"Apple continues to resort to litigation over market
competition in an effort to limit consumer choice," Samsung
said in a statement. "We will continue to take the
necessary legal measures to ensure the availability of our
innovative products in the United States."
