Apple files suit against Samsung

Apple has sued Samsung Electronics, saying the South Korean company’s Galaxy line of smartphones and tablet computers copy Apple’s popular iPad and iPhone.

In a lawsuit filed on Friday in United States District Court, Apple alleges the product design, user interface and packaging of the Galaxy products “slavishly copy” Apple.

Cupertino, California-based Apple is seeking an order barring Samsung from infringing on a variety of its patents and trademarks, as well as unspecified damages.

A Samsung spokesperson says the company’s products are the result of its own research and development. He says Samsung plans to defend itself against Apple’s lawsuit.—Sapa-AP
