Samsung plans to try and ban the next iPhone in Korea, based on violation of its own wireless patents
posted by Daniel P. / Sep 19, 2011, 4:00 AM
The Korean Times newspaper says this is supposed to be a surprise lawsuit in the wake of the iPhone 5 launch next month, but it's obviously not that much of a surprise now, if this thing is really in the making.
It is more like USA Vs. South Korea than Apple Vs. Samsung. Who said Apple was rude. Check this : http://www.cultofmac.com/75742
Samsung (Samsung Group not just Samsung Electronics) is arrogant; just because they are a bigger company and have more resources. Apple and other western companies innovate; samsung just copies; takes licences.

I totally agree with you man. Apple is america's largest company, our economy gets effected if apple goes down.

apple is not america's largest company.. its far from it. it is americas RICHEST company. There is a big difference. The economy does not hinge on iphone sales. It doesnt even make a dent in our economy. Hate to break it to ya. All apple's slave labor is in another country, so if iphones stopped selling tomorrow, they might fire a few people in the head office, but nothing noticable in america. Looking the same is kinda crummy, but its not illegal to look similar to something else. Patent violation however, is illegal.

no for one reason only if samsung wins, then samsung and apple will come to a stand off agreement and agree to let each other play together and stop this legal nonsense. Samsung has to push back as hard or harder to stop Apple's bullying, so anything Apple has already done is fair game for samsung to try. I really dont think there is much underhanded legal crap that Apple hasnt tried yet, so they should be expecting it all back in spades. If samsung were pulling an apple and merely trying bullying everyone into submission, i would be completely against it.

Samsung is just copying. Too addicted to it. No innovations.

And you criticize samsung for that kind of move (swimming in Android waters)? Why spend multimillion dollars in OS development when you can hook up with an already tested OS. Sometimes you need to trust your brain more than your ego. . .

Rotten Apple started Patents War against Samsung with 12000+ patents while Apple has only 1000+ patents. Samsung will knock Apple to the floor on Patent War.

Nokia has over 30,000 patents and motorola over 17,000(now belongs to Google). They are they real innovators of communication and mobile technology.

Apple design some of the component inside Iphone4. Most parts it is just an outsourced components pack together, design and research done by other company. Even Apple A4 is manufactured by samsung lol. While Samsung truly inovate with its Exynos CPU and Amoled Display. I could say Samsung innovate in more components in sgs2 than Apple in iphone4. If they want war lets bring it.

My kneejerk reaction was to say yea Samsung F them in the A. After some thought though, I realized this is ridiculous. Why all the back and fourth? Put out a strong product and let the consumers decide. Granted, intellectual property needs to be protected but I feel this is now in the tit for tat stage. I want a true free market for once!

I don't think anyone should have there product being band but I really hope Samsung do get the iPhones etc banned just so they get a taste of their own medicine....looks like Samsung might actually have real reasons to take someone to court and not just hey yours has a screen and is slimmer than ours so we suing attitude...

Let's see.... again blocking the sale of a device in a market I am against. Using this to get settlement talks started MAYBE it's ok. My dad taught me not to stoop to the level of others, but he also taught me to fight for my rights.....I am gonna be Switzerland on this one I think

Samsung cannot be blamed for this, Apple called this upon themselves, they started it... Nevertheless, they probably should think of more innovation rather than such useless patent wars... I mean, why ban sales of other devices when you can let the consumers have a wider choice of devices? Why not think positively and have a healthy competition?
