In case you haven’t realized it yet, there’s a World War on in the corporate world. It’s happening in courtrooms and retail outlets across several countries. Its latest battleground is the Netherlands, where Samsung is trying its best to have its rival Apple’s hottest selling gadgets banned.
If this ever escalates beyond legal squabbles, maybe Samsung should pull an Inception and hire a team of dream infiltrators to plant an idea in Tim Cook’s mind: You must destroy Steve Jobs’ empire. Enough crazy talk, read on for the whole scoop.
So this latest confrontation is unraveling at the Hague, where Samsung’s crack team of lawyers are filing an injunction to have the latest generation iPhone’s and the two current iPad models taken from store shelves.
The bone of contention in this nasty episode is over patent violations. The patent wars between Apple and Samsung have been dragging for so long now, the dispute has become rather ludicrous.
Apple has retaliated by sending its own lawyers to resolve the matter. There’s no telling whether both tech giants will vainly go a bridge too far and meet a frustrating end in a corner of the European market. Expect an update on this front in the coming days.
