After losing a big battle to Apple in Germany where it was ruled that the withstanding injunction against their Galaxy Tab 10.1 would not be lifted, Samsung’s legal team has found something else to do in the meantime while they wait for the opportunity to appeal the ruling.

They’ve taken the battle to the streets of Paris. They’ve sued Apple in France for patent infringements on three different technologies. All iPhones from the 3G upward are included as well as both iPad tablets. It’s odd to see Samsung acting proactively in this instance, but we imagine them getting the jump on Apple in another region before Apple gets a chance to do the same is important. No word was given on which of Samsung’s patents Apple were infringing on. [AFP via Google]
