Google Samsung Unite To Fight Against Apple's Patents - War Of Patents
Recently we have seen Apple bringing Samsung into the courts of law for patents violation. As if this was not enough, Apple event caused Samsung a huge loss by imposing a ban on Samsung Galaxy Tab sales in the United States. Apple is also rumored to be working on how to ban Samsung Galaxy SIII which according to Apple is violation of Apple's Siri patents of voice assistant (artificial intelligence). Although Samsung tried to fight back against Apple by filing an appeal in the court against the injunction of Samsung Galaxy Tab, their appeal was blatantly rejected with the statement - Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the market with infringing products
Samsung's please has been responded by Google and apparently both the companies are uniting to fight against Apple in its patent wars. Apple is known for dragging companies to the court for settlement of patents and the outcome is never done in terms of money but completely banning of the infringing product. If this continues, Samsung will soon have to stop its sale in the United States because of Apple's patents. According to Apple, “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. This kind of blatant copying is wrong and, as we've said many times before, we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas."
With a reprimand, Apple is definitely after Samsung and it is not going to stop until Samsung stops copying its patents. Let's see what Samsung and Google united can do to avoid Apple's patent stashes. There is one thing for sure, with Samsung teaming up and uniting with Google, there is definitely some change and twist that we are going to see in near future.
