Sounds like Samsung has not taken into liking for Apple since Apple’s lawsuit on them to stop selling Samsung Galaxy tab in Germany.
Not even the death of Steve Jobs can stop Samsung to put a lawsuit against them.
As reported via BBC,
Samsung is seeking an injunction to get the new iPhone 4S banned from sale in France and Italy.
It claims that Apple has used 3G wireless technology, which Samsung invented, without paying for it.
A patent war between the companies has been rumbling on for months in courts around the world.
Apple has obtained temporary embargoes on its rivals’ products in Australia and Germany and is seeking similar rulings in several other countries.
In a statement, Samsung said: “Apple has continued to flagrantly violate our intellectual property rights and free ride on our technology, and we will steadfastly protect our intellectual property.”
Patent law blogger Florian Mueller warned that Samsung was putting the cart before the horse by seeking an injunction before negotiating terms.
“Imagine what would happen if every participant in a standard-setting process could later shut down entire telecommunications networks even if the alleged infringers are willing to pay a royalty to be determined, in the event of a commercial disagreement between the parties, by a court of law,” wrote Mr Mueller on his Foss Patents site.
