“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."
There haven't been any public comments from either company as of yet, but we can only imagine this one will continue to heat up as both continue to defend their stance.
Does Apple have a case on their hands? Should Samsung settle out of court if they're given the chance? Or is Samsung in the right and Apple's just trying to quash some of their Android competition? Give us your take either in the comments or the forums. [WSJ]
Update - More from Apple:
“It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging,” an Apple representative told Mobilized. “This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.” [Mobilized]
