Apple-Samsung Patent Battle Adds France to European Tour

A new escalation in Samsung’s sprawling legal battle with Apple.

The South Korean company has sued Apple for patent infringement in France. Filed in a Paris district court, the complaint claims the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and the 3G iPad violate three Samsung patents. It’s not clear which, but sources tell the AFP they’re likely related to UMTS, a third-generation wireless technology.

With this latest suit, Apple and Samsung are now battling it out in eight courts worldwide: The U.S., Australia, Korea, Japan, Germany, the Netherlands, Britain and France.
