Samsung bites back at Apple

SAMSUNG Electronics said it has filed a lawsuit against Apple alleging patent infringements, days after the US technology firm took the South Korean company to court on similar grounds.

Samsung said it filed suit Thursday in a Seoul court alleging five patent infringements by Apple. Separate suits were filed in Tokyo citing two patent infringements and in the German city of Mannheim citing three.

The announcement came a week after Apple filed suit against Samsung in San Francisco claiming that the South Korean giant copied its smartphones and tablet computers.

Apple’s lawsuit says Samsung’s mobile phones and Galaxy Tab imitated the iPhone and the iPad. Samsung vowed at the time to “respond actively”.

The Galaxy Tab has been the best-selling rival to the iPad, which has dominated the growing market for the touch¬screen devices.

Despite their prickly competition in finished products, the two firms have a close business relationship.

Apple was Samsung’s second-largest client in 2010 after Japan’s Sony Corp, accounting for four percent of the South Korean firm’s 155 trillion won ($142 billion) annual revenue.
