Apple expands lawsuit to include Samsung's cases for their phones and tablets
Not satisfied with waging a legal battle with Samsung on consumer electronics alone, Apple has added the cases Samsung sells to the list of items to be litigated in Australia. According to recently released court documents, Apple believes that the cases infringe on at least 10 of their patents.

Since Apple objects to the physical similarity of Samsung's devices - both tablets and smartphones, it makes sense that Samsung's cases would be objectionably similar. Of course similarity isn’t the same thing as infringement – that’s something the Australian courts will have to decide. In the meantime, we can all take a moment to reflect on this new (and unpleasant) stage in the smartphone wars, as the accessories to our electronic gadgets become one more excuse to take the battle out of consumers’ hands and into a court room.
