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.”
