Apple Sues Samsung For Copying the iPhone and iPad

Apple has filed suit against Samsung Electronics for copying the look and feel of its iPhone and iPad, according to the WSJ.

The lawsuit, filed on April 15 in the Northern District of California, alleged that Samsung's smartphones, such as the "Galaxy S 4G," "Epic 4G," "Nexus S" and its "Galaxy Tab" touchscreen tablet, violated Apple's intellectual property.

"Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products," the lawsuit said.

The Journal notes that this is bound to complicate the relationship between the companies as Samsung makes microchips used in Apple's products.

The galaxy tab it's not at all iPad-like,it's smaller,and different design.Of course,it has a display and icons,but how should they make it?Microsoft sued Apple for using icons and mouse arrow on Mac Os?I love Apple products,i believe it is art,bad this has nothing to do with art,is all about money in the end...

What did android ever do wrong? I don't think it's a copy at all. iOS and android have significant differences.
