Apple Sues Samsung For Copying iPhone, iPad


Apple's pulling out the big guns against Samsung.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has filed suit against Samsung for patent and trademark infringement.

Apple alleges that Samsung has purposely modeled several of its Android products after Apple's hit iPad and iPhone devices.

Among the offenders are Samsung's Galaxy line of tablets and smartphones. Apple claims that the design, hardware, and interface features of Samsung's gadgets too closely resemble those of iDevices.

"It's no coincidence that Samsung's latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging," an Apple rep told All Things D. "This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple's intellectual property when companies steal our ideas."
