Apple Sues Samsung, Saying Galaxy Phones and Tablets Too Close To iPad and iPhone Design | Ina Fried | Mobilized | AllThingsD

Apparently Apple does not believe imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

In the latest intellectual property suit to hit the smartphone industry, Apple is suing Samsung, alleging the Galaxy line of phones and tablets infringe on a number of the company’s patents and trademarks.

The suit, filed on Friday in U.S. District Court in Northern California, alleges patent and trademark infringement, as well as unfair competition. Apple is seeking injunctions, actual damages and punitive damages, as well as a finding that the alleged infringement was willful.

Seriously, the Apple is trying to prove that this company is driving technology around us. However, it is not so. As a Tech Expert, I favor open source and freedom coming from an Android Tablet like Samsung Galaxy Tab. I hope Apple is trying to hide the iPad's disadvantages with this sue. But it cannot. Samsung Galaxy Tab is completely different from iPad.

Exactly, the Samsung Galaxy is a piece of junk, the iPad is not.

Why hasn't Samsung responded? Because they are telling their number 2 parts buyer some more parts have just become available.

Technology is not a one company or a one person property it is depend upon their companies technical background so Apple's saying is not correct Samsung's Galaxy and and Tablets are different from Ipad.

I think samsung has no need to copy Apples design Galaxy design is its own their company developers and technicians have spent so much of time to that design.
