    I was told chinese goophone intend to sue apple like Samesung. You can sue anyone for anything, but you won't be successful unless you sue on some proper basis. :p

    Samsung just wants to try to distract Apple from innovating with all these frivolous law suits

    Samsung sues Apple, likely over LTE patents that are FRAND and already licensed via Qualcomm. They don't have a leg to stand on. Its pure intimidation. And it works in the public eye. Samsung-fanboys will run out defending poor defenseless mega-conglomerate that's 1/5 of the GDP of the entire country of South Korea.

    Uh, you have that wrong. Apple is distracting themselves with all of their lawsuits. Hence the failure known as the iPhone 5.




































    And before you reply with a nonsensical post about sales numbers, I have two words for you: Justin Bieber.

    Also +1 for you. I never got the obsession with Apple's sales figures, as if they made up for the shortcomings of iOS.

    Just getting totally out of control now isn't it? Surely some form of common ground can be found without constant referral to the copyright lawyers. Apple have been getting progressively more litigious over the last 5 years or so, and I have no problem with them protecting their intellectual property...But come on folks, spend the dollars on new products instead of in the courtroom and give us all a break from this.

    You are right that Apple is suing a lot but seems like Samsung is on the losing end with all their court cases either thrown out, Apple wins or billion dollars awarded to Apple. So why waste more time and money? Maybe its a strategy of some kind.
    I'd have to disagree that the iphone 5 is anywhere near a failure but whatever you say.
    Not sure why you're a fan of Justin Bieber but whatever makes you happy dude:D

    Sure, other companies may have initiated copy right lawsuits in the past, but none did it right until Apple did.

    Does Samsung not realize that they are complete idiots?

    "As soon as the iPhone 5 was available for purchase, Samsung began its investigation of the product"

    Obviously this is just revenge. This sentence says it all.

    funny how people mock samsung yet apple is trying to sue everyone and there mother,hence them trying to sue a grocery store i believe off a logo that looks like a apple lmao

    ----------

    far from it,any smart company would wait until another company drops there products that infringe any copyright laws to collect money off it's sale or ban the sale of the product,no one would sue before the actual item was out,well any smart person

    Apart from creating the worlds fastest smartphone in a form factor that is nearly half the physical size of that of it's closest rival. Innovation is more than skin deep.

    Justin Bieber is a failure? I hate everything about him, but a failure he is not. What exactly makes him a failure?
