APPLE ACCUSES SAMSUNG OF PATENT VIOLATIONS

Apple sues South Korean firm Samsung on allegations of copied Smartphones and tablet computers with it’s Galaxy tab. Apple accused Samsung of violating several patents and trademarks, but Samsung officials suspect Apple has violated Samsung’s wireless technology patents instead.

As the second-largest client of Samsung, Apple accounts for 4% of Samsung’s $142 billion annual revenues. “ Apple is one of our key buyers of semiconductors and display panels. However, we have no choice but to respond strongly this time,” an unidentified official told the news agency. Samsung is responding by taking legal measures to protect their intellectual property. “This kind of blatant copying is wrong,” Apple spokeswoman Kristin Huguet said in a statement

As both technology driven companies go head to head, it is clear that this feud can only be resolved through the legal system. It is unclear which of these two companies are in violation of patents, but further investigation will take place to prove the claims made by each party.
