Samsung Will Be 'More Aggressive' Against 'Free Riding' Apple

Samsung says it will be 'more aggressive' in its patent battle with Apple from now on, according to a BusinessWeek report.

Apple initially sued Samsung for copying the design of its iPhone and iPad which has sparked a huge legal battle between the two companies. Complicating matters, Apple and Samsung are still linked by a working relationship in which Samsung provides many of the components for iOS devices.

Thus far Samsung has been fairly quiet about this dispute; however, their was some speculation that the company would go on the offensive.

"We've been quite respectful and also passive in a way" in consideration of those links, Lee Younghee said during the interview in her office at Samsung's headquarters building in southern Seoul. "However, we shouldn't be ... anymore."

Lee said that Samsung holds numerous patents covering wireless telecommunications technology. Samsung says such patents cover key functions including allowing a mobile phone user to speak on the phone and receive an e-mail at the same time.

"We believe Apple is free riding" on such Samsung patents, Lee said. "We'll be pursuing our rights for this in a more aggressive way from now on."
