Samsung Hits Back at Apple With iPhone 5 Patent Infringement Suit

Samsung Electronics Co. said Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s iPhone 5 infringes its patents, escalating a global fight over mobile devices after winning a court order lifting a ban on U.S. sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer.
The world’s largest mobile-phone seller, based in Suwon, South Korea, added claims about the iPhone 5, which was released last month, to an existing patent-infringement lawsuit between the two companies in federal court in San Jose, California. Apple won a $1.05 billion jury verdict against Samsung on Aug. 24 in a separate patent case in the same court.
“As soon as the iPhone 5 was available for purchase, Samsung began its investigation of the product,” the company said in its court filing yesterday. The iPhone 5 infringes two standards patents and six features patents, Samsung said.Article Source
