Apple sues Samsung for copying iPhone etc.

Samsung Galaxy Tab and Apple iPadApple Inc is suing Korean manufacturer Samsung for copying their entire Galaxy product range from Apple’s iPhone, iPod and iPad designs.

In the lawsuit that was filed last Friday, Apple claimed that “When a Samsung Galaxy phone is used in public, there can be little doubt that it would be viewed as an Apple product based upon the design alone…”

I have to agree with Apple’s statement, Galaxy products do resemble Apple’s at first glance. However, it’s not necessary the case from a close look, and in a design copyright lawsuit every details matter instead of just a first impression.

Apple should know the facts well, so it’s probably just a business gimmick to halt the growth of Samsung Galaxy, one of its fiercest competitors (though still trailing far behind) in the smartphone and tablet computer markets.

[Update] Samsung is suing Apple for violating its patent rights in return lol.

  1. I agree, although i used samsung galaxy mini i’m not supporting galaxy ace from design.

    samsung must confident with their own design coz the battle is android vs iOS so don’t worry bout the design

  2. I think samsung has no need to copy Apples design Galaxy design is its own their company developers and technicians have spent so much of time to that design.

  3. Funny thing is though that Samsung released it’s demo of the design in conventions a full year before the iphone were released.

    So yeah…
