Apple and Samsung have been engaged in legal battles for quite some time, the two companies will return to court later this year, and now it appears that Apple want’s to add the Samsung Galaxy S4 to its lawsuit against Samsung.
Apple has now requested that the court adds Samsung’s new flagship Android smartphone to its lawsuit with Samsung, Apple are arguing that the Galaxy S4 also infringes on Apple patents like previous devices.
The purpose of the responses Apple and Samsung submitted yesterday was to identify 22 accused products per side. The filings reveal a major new disagreement: Apple has analyzed the Galaxy S4, Samsung’s new top-selling product, and “has concluded that it is an infringing device and accordingly intends to move for leave to add the Galaxy S4 as an infringing product”. Apple’s current list of 22 accused products does not include the S4, but a footnote contains the statement from which I just quoted. Apple says it will drop another product from its list of 22 accused products once it has permission to add the S4 to this litigation.
