    I'm writing a research paper on the Apple vs Samsung court cases. Does anyone know how it truly started? Seemed to start shortly after the death of Steve Jobs due to patent infringement that was never mentioned before the CEO's death....

    I believe the first shot was taken by Apple when they started suing all Android phone makers because Steve Jobs hated Android.

    You'll need to do your own research to get a reference and specific info though, do your own essays ;)

    I believe Apple were discussing issues with HTC and Samsung for some time before any official action was taken. As all of those talks would have been confidential, it may be some time before we ever discover the truth.

    Here's one link (from Fortune in March 2010) to get you started:
    Apple talks tough to handset makers

    Obviously HTC was one such tier one handset maker, but it doesn't take a genius to work out Samsung would have been another.
