Apple Looks to Include Galaxy S4 in Second Trial Against Samsung
Apple wants to add the Galaxy S4 to the list of products its considers infringing for its second trial against Samsung in the U.S., reports The Verge. The company has a list of 22 products that it says infringe on the iOS user interface.
Following the release of the Galaxy S4, Apple says it has analyzed the device and "concluded that it is an infringing device and accordingly intends to move for leave to add the Galaxy S4 as an infringing product."
In order to add the Galaxy S4 to a list of infringing products it originally filed in August 2012, Apple will "eliminate (without prejudice)" one of Samsung's accused smartphones and tablets — which already include the Galaxy SII, Galaxy Note & Note II, and the Galaxy Nexus (full list in source link below). It has also been ordered to comply with Judge Lucy Koh's request to limit the number of patent claims and infringing devices ahead of next year's trial. Apple had originally gone after the Galaxy S III back in June, when it tried to have US sales of the device stopped before it was even launched.
Samsung has not requested any changes as of yet to the list of Apple products it believes are infringing.
