Apple Adds Galaxy Note, Galaxy S III to List of Targets in Samsung Patent Battle

Fresh off one victory in a San Jose, Calif., courtroom, Apple has expanded a separate suit against Samsung to include two of the Korean company’s latest popular devices.

Apple on Friday amended its second lawsuit to add the Galaxy S III smartphone and Galaxy Note “phablet” to a list of products that it says infringe on its intellectual property. This is a second suit, also before U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, but separate from the one decided by a jury last week.

In the first case, a nine-person jury ruled that a number of older Samsung devices infringe on protected Apple designs and patents, and awarded more than $1 billion in damages. In the second case, Apple had been targeting some of the same devices, and some newer devices, including the Galaxy Nexus.

Koh had already issued an injunction against the Galaxy Nexus in the second suit, which isn’t expected to go to trial until next year. That injunction has been put on hold while an appeals court considers the matter.

The amended complaint was reported earlier by AppleInsider.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
