“Apple has made the next step into the patent war against Samsung. Yesterday Apple has filed a complaint to the US International Trade Commission (USITC) requesting a ban for every Galaxy S phone in the USA.
Samsung might be dropping its latest complaint against Apple in the USA (which by the way had the same purpose – ban the iGadgets in the USA), but Apple doesn’t really care. It has just filed a counter suit in the USITC requesting to stop the import of all flavors of the first generation Galaxy S phone – Captivate, Fascinate, Infuse 4G and Galaxy S 4G, the QWERTY droids Intercept and Transform, and the Galaxy Tab and Tab 10.1.
The reason for the ban request is once again the infringement of 6 patents – 4 technical and 2 design ones.
As it seems, the patent war is nowhere near its end and we will be seeing more of these for sure. We bet everything will eventually be settled with the help of a huge amount of cash and patent exchange between the two sides.” via gsmarena.com
