At this point, if you’re like me you probably have lost track of who is suing who over what. Everyone wants to be king and claim, “I thought of it first. It’s mine I tell ya, ALL MINE!” Can’t we all just be cool like a bunch of Fonzie’s?
Currently Samsung is suing Apple Inc., claiming that the iPhone 4S is infringing on three patents. Samsung’s Legal team has formally requested to see the iPhone 4S source code (are they for real?), and its agreement with carriers to determine whether Apple is in violation of Samsung patents.
Apple is accusing Samsung of “slavishly copying” its iPad and iPhone designs, stating the Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy S II has the “look and feel” of Apple’s product. This argument has resulted in the temporary banning the same of the Galaxy Tablet.
Your guess is as good as mine as to how this story will play out. Unless Samsung has some hefty proof of copyright infringement I doubt a judge is going to order Apple to hand over its source code for the iPhone 4S.
