Samsung Files A Complaint Against Apple With ITC.

Samsung vs Apple ITC
Yesterday Samsung has filed a complaint with ITC against Apple regarding some of its products, mostly covering mobile products. The complaint no. 337-2824 indicates following types of products:
Letter to James R. Holbein, Secretary, USITC, requesting that the Commission conduct an investigation under section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended regarding Certain Mobile Electronic Devices, Including Wireless Communication Devices, Portable Music and Data Processing Devices, and Tablet Computer . The proposed respondent is Apple Inc., Cupertino, California.

Apple and Samsung used to be cozy industrial partners with Samsung providing chips and chipsets for most of the Apple products. But the relationship soured after Apple went against Samsung, and claimed in a U.S. lawsuit that Samsung’s Galaxy phone and tablet computers “slavishly” copy the iPhone and iPad. Just after Apple lost against Nokia.
Samsung is claiming 5 patents in the dispute and seek to block import of iPhone and iPads in to USA.
