    iPad 2, iPhone Counterattacked by Samsung's Galaxy in Lawsuit


    On June 30, Samsung Electronics Co. filed a lawsuit against Apple Inc. The underlying idea was that iPhone and iPad were copied by its Galaxy products. Through this action, Samsung intends to defend its patent rights.

    The Samsung spokesman, Nam Ki Yung, confirmed the firmís serious intentions to protect its intellectual property. He also stated the fact that the reason why they made this decision was "to streamline the legal proceedings". It is very well-known the fact that Samsung is the second most important producer of mobile phones in the world.

    On the other hand, Steve Park, a spokesman from the Apple Company, had nothing to add for the journalists of Bloomberg News. After the Cupertinoís first move in April against Samsung due to affinity between the Galaxy phones and iPhone or iPad product, now Samsung makes the second move through counter-suits.

    Even so, the actions took by the Samsung Company are not impressive as it cannot provide strong arguments regarding the case. Lucy Koh, the judge considering this lawsuit, states the following ideas in response to the annoying issue created between Samsung and Apple: "The new iPad 2 was introduced a mere three months ago. Thus, Samsung's contention its new tablet products are likely to be encountered alongside a next-generation iPad is quite speculative and Apple's decision to focus on infringement of the iPad 2 appears reasonable. Common sense suggests allegations of copying are necessarily directed at Apple's existing products, to which Samsung has access and could potentially mimic, and not at Apple's unreleased, inaccessible, next-generation products."
