The first big new fight in the PATENT WAR has broken out in 2012 and – surprise, surprise! – it’s our old deadly enemies Samsung and Apple at it once more. According to Bloomberg, Apple has filed for a ban on the sales of 10 Samsung mobiles, including the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S Plus.
This patent is based around physical hardware design issues rather than software infringements, so it’s all about those central buttons and slimline cases and who copied who this time around.
2012 will be another great year to be a lawyer.
