Apple Sues Samsung for ‘Copying’ iPhone and iPad
Apple had enough of the iPhone and iPad 'copies', as the company sues Samsung Electronics for copyright charges.
If a friend accidentally picks up your Samsung Galaxy S 4G phone instead of his Apple iPhone 3GS, then something must be wrong. And it looks like Apple realized this, as the fruit company sues Samsung Electronics for allegedly copying the design aesthetics of the iPhone and iPad. The lawsuit was filed over at the Northern District of California last Friday.
From the interface, the technology, down to the design style, a user can easily mistake one for the other. And Apple is charging Samsung for intellectual property violations and damages.
The perpetrators? For the smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S 4G bears notoriously close resemblance to the iPhone. While for tablets, the Epic 4G, Nexus S, and Galaxy Tab look a lot like the iPad. There’s also a possibility of Google Android joining the case since, ultimately, the Android OS for these devices provide a resemblance to the iOS.
Apple shares their sentiment on this matter:
“Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple’s technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products.”
Samsung has yet to give their thoughts on the matter.View Article Source »
