Apple Opens First 2012 Fire Upon Samsung, Seeking Ban on Ten Devices in Germany

It’s 2012 but don’t expect some companies to change just because numbers on a calendar do. Apple’s gone back to the courts of Germany to sue Samsung, this time seeking a ban on 10 different devices including the Samsung Galaxy S II and the Samsung Galaxy S Plus. The lawsuits pertain to hardware design issues so these cases will have a lot more grey area than their software patent spats. If history really does repeat itself Apple will have a tough time getting courts to rule in their favor on the notion that Samsung is ripping them in the design department. Reload on your popcorn and soft drinks – this’ll be a long one. [via Bloomberg]

      They can’t say that. Apple has a patent on that word. Your cease and desist letter is already in the mail.

    Oh Apple just drop it. It is getting embarrassing. Stop waiting your dough in court and use it for R&D for example to bring out a new designed iPhone that might even have a chance to compete against Sammy.

    It has gotten to the point where I almost get annoyed anytime someone mentions apple now. The company is a horrid ran company that sell underpowered overpriced crap to ignorant people.

    Apple is a joke.

    Even though I’ve never been an Apple fan, I’ve never had a real problem with them. But they are really just out of control with these law suits. So now I say, screw Apple. I’ve lost all respect.. They must really be scared of competition over there.

    I am looking for donations to sue Apple my grandfather took a bite off an Apple in 1952 and it looked like the Apple logo and now they stole this idea from him. Lmao this is just about how ridiculous these lawsuits are is Crapple nit noticing that all these lawsuits accomplish us to kiss off customers?
