Apple Sues Samsung for Copying UI and Design Features
"This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple's intellectual property when companies steal our ideas." --- Apple Inc.
Last week, Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung, accusing the latter of violating the Cupetino-based company’s intellectual property in the design of its smartphones and tablets. The suit take specific aim at Samsung’s Galaxy series, as well as its other smartphones, for copying Apple’s user interface and design features.
A representative from Apple said:
“It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging…. This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.”
In response to this accusation, a Samsung representative e-mailed a statement to CNET:
“Samsung’s development of core technologies and strengthening our intellectual property portfolio are keys to our continued success. Samsung will respond actively to this legal action taken against us through appropriate legal measures to protect our intellectual property.”
It seems that Apple and Samsung are once again brawling each other with regards to their intellectual properties.View Article Source »
