Apple Seeks Ban on Samsung Smartphones in Germany

Yet another escalation of hostilities between Apple and Samsung.

Apple has filed suit against Samsung once again in Germany, looking to ban the sales of a number of smartphones and tablets. Filed in Dusseldorf Regional Court and based on a number of design patents, the suit targets Samsung’s Galaxy S II and its Galaxy S Plus, along with eight other smartphones.

Reached for comment, Apple reiterated the same line it has been using to upbraid Samsung throughout the pair’s legal spat:

“This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.”
