    The enmity between Apple and
    Samsung is set to build up after
    Apple filed a new lawsuit in
    Netherlands, seeking an
    injunction against Samsung's
    smartphones and tablets. According to AppleInsider, the latest lawsuit is more extensive
    the one filed in Germany, where Apple claimed that Samsung
    illegally copied the iPad design for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and banned its sales. Apple now demands in its new lawsuit a ban
    on the sales of all Samsung's
    smartphones and tablets running
    the Google Android platform in
    the Netherlands. It also requires
    Samsung to do a complete recall of all affected Samsung devices
    from European distributors and
    resellers, which will affect its
    entire supply chain in Europe.

    this is getting old fast, apple looks like they are suing every company that even tries to compete, after the german court shot down the other suit, apples new patent cleared the patent office(a ridiculous one at that) and now I bet they're suing over that and if they are, they will sue more

    Patent on touchcreen and patent on integrated voicemail for smartphones

    bs

    micropage7, you still reposting news articles?

    I believe... out of the last ten threads you started 9 were re-posts of news articles.

    I recall another thread, in that thread you were given a subtle hint by a certain mod.

    Just saying, you seem to be poking a stick in a hornets nest just to see the results.

    Back on topic of this thread:

    Apple lawsuits are frivolous and will, hopefully, be found such by any intelligent court.

    IMO, using the legal system to tie the hands of competitors is wrong and that ,hopefully , some sane/intelligent/common sense body of rule will smack 'em (all who [ab]use the system) down (figuratively) and put a stop to the madness.

    It is hurting the consumer (remember, the ones who buys their cr*p)... our pocketbooks/wallets, should decide the market and what we want to purchase - not some half-baked legal tactics.

    :ohwell: In the real world... this won't change in my lifetime.
    This is all just part of my opinion.

    Patent trolling seems common place amongst the big players these days, a terrible shame as it really only hurts innovation and creativity.

    Corporations like Apple doing this is really petty.
    About as petty as the last thing they were complaining about.
    What was it?
    "app" store or something?
