Samsung moves to ban iPhone 4S sales in France, Italy

Written by


It would spare Apple the embarrassment
Samsung announced Wednesday it would take action to try to stop Apple from selling the iPhone 4S in France and Italy.

Samsung is already engaged in a prolonged tit for tat legal battle with Apple, over patent infringement in both companies’ smarpthones and tablets. Speaking of tits, Apple fanboys in France and Italy could find themselves without a new shiny toy in mid October, but Samsung is reportedly also planning to seek injunctions in other European countries as well.

Apple has yet to comment the request, but Samsung believes it has a strong case, as the iPhone 4S uses some of its 3G patents. Samsung describes the infringements as too severe to let Apple sell the new iPhone in Europe. With competition between in the smartphone market heating up and both companies acting like patent trolls, the legal dispute seems destined to escalate.

That's a pretty unfair comment about both companies acting like patent trolls. It's blatantly obvious that Samsung is only reacting to Apple's trolling. Samsung has useful patents. Apple has ridiculous patents that some loser allowed to be approved.

The funny thing about the ridiculous patents is that they are easily understood by non-geeky judges (Example: German court Judge) and they approve ban. On the other hand understanding the 3G patents, Judge will take his time, so this case will run a bit long and by the time any result comes, iphone 4S might have already been succeeded by iphone 5.

Totally agree Apple started this nonsense now they reap what they saw
