Apple Sues Samsung Over Tablet
Samsung’s response to the iPad 2 seemed to match the level of Apple’s technology and design on every level. In fact, Apple felt the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was too close to its own design and issued a patent lawsuit against the South Korean technology company, and last week a German court stopped the sales of the Samsung’s tablet in the European Union. Since the court’s decision, Apple has also won an agreement in Australia which means Samsung would not be able to sell their new tablet until the patent lawsuit is settled.
With these two major markets already halting the sales of Samsung’s second generation tablet, the company has preemptively put into motion counterclaims against Apple in South Korea and Japan as well as the United States. Samsung also plans to appeal the German court’s ruling on Aug. 25 where it will argue that the Galaxy Tab did not infringe on Apple’s intellectual property.
