Samsung to Attack iPhone 5 With At Least Eight Patents
Samsung has told a U.S. court that it plans to sue Apple over at least eight patents that it believes the iPhone 5 infringes on, reports FOSS Patents.
Here's the statement from Samsung.
"Samsung anticipates that it will file, in the near future, a motion to amend its infringement contentions to add the iPhone 5 as an accused product. On September 12, 2012, Apple announced that it will release the iPhone 5 on September 21, 2012. Based on information currently available, Samsung expects that the iPhone 5 will infringe the asserted Samsung patents-in-suit in the same way as the other accused iPhone models. Samsung plans to file a motion to amend its infringement contentions to address the iPhone 5 as soon as it has had a reasonable opportunity to analyze the device. Because Samsung believes the accused functionality of the iPhone 5 will be similar to the accused functionality of other accused Apple products, Samsung does not believe that amendment of its infringement contentions should affect the case schedule."
This second battle between Apple and Samsung is currently scheduled to go to trial in California in March 2014.
