Samsung to add iPhone 5 to US lawsuit

Samsung_to_add_iPhone_5_to_US_lawsuit_11921

iPhone 5 won’t escape the legal battle

Samsung is expecting to file a lawsuit against the iPhone 5, alleging that the new smartphone infringes a number of its patents.

The iPhone 5 – which goes on sale today – will be the latest addition to the ongoing legal dispute between Samsung and Apple. The two companies are locked in a highly publicised disagreement over intellectual property infringement, with several patent battles in 10 countries.

In a US court filing, Samsung has stated: “Based on information currently available, Samsung expects that the iPhone 5 will infringe the asserted Samsung patents-in-suit in the same way as the other accused iPhone models.”

An ongoing dispute

The iPhone 5 dispute is the latest in a long line of lawsuits between Samsung and Apple. Recently, a Tokyo court ruled in favour of Samsung, which comes after a UK hearing forced Apple to run adverts stating that Samsung did not copy its intellectual property.

However, a US court hearing resulted in Samsung having to pay Apple $1 billion (£61,549,800) in damages as the jury found that the company had copied features of the iPhone. Apple has filed another injunction in the courts, which could see several Samsung devices removed from sale in the US.

Natalie Booth, online marketing manager at theEword, said: “As Samsung and Apple have each been successful in recent court cases, it will be interesting to see whether Samsung gains another victory with the iPhone 5 lawsuit, and if the US courts choose to rule in Apple’s favour in its upcoming injunction.”
