We heard earlier that Apple may have offered liscensing deals to Samsung an Motorola related to patents used in Google’s Android OS, both Samsung and Apple are engadged in a number of different lawsuits around the world.
Now according to a recent report from Foss Patents, on the day that Apple will announced the new iPad 3, Samsung has filed another lawsuit against Apple in South Korea.
The latest lawsuit is related to three different patents which are used by apple’s iPhone 4S and iPad 2 and relate to “methods of displaying data, the user interface, and short text messages”.
After Apple sued Samsung in the United States in mid-April 2011, Samsung fired back in South Korea, Japan and Germany (and brought lawsuits in several other countries in the following months). At some point, Samsung was planning to seek a preliminary injunction against the iPhone 4S in South Korea, but changed mind. Now Samsung has again decided to play the South Korean card
