Apple is ramping up its spat with Samsung, according to reports, with the company seeking a preliminary injunction on four of Samsung’s top pieces of hardware. Three Android smartphones and one Android tablet are named by Apple as violating their patents, and the lawyers from Cupertino want all four devices yanked from store shelves.

The Infuse 4G, Galaxy S 4G, Droid Charge, and Galaxy Tab 10.1 are all named by Apple’s crack legal team and if they get their wicked way, we could see four of Samsung’s newest releases pulled from sale….

According to patent site, FOSS Patents, four patents are mentioned by Apple in its request.

Apple asserts the following four intellectual property rights — three design patents and one utility patent:

  • U.S. Design Patent No. D618,677 on an “electronic device”
  • U.S. Design Patent No. D593,087 on an “electronic device”
  • U.S. Design Patent No. D504,889 on an “electronic device”
  • U.S. Patent No. 7,469,381 on “list scrolling and document translation, scaling, and rotation on a touch-screen display” (previously asserted against HTC as well as Nokia)

This is dangerous territory for Apple to be stumbling through. While it’s true that a victory here would mean some Samsung smartphones and a tablet would be removed from sale, the possibility of a negative result in court is a real one.

If things don’t go their way, Apple runs the risk of their overarching feud with Samsung being dealt a potentially lethal blow.

Clearly the legal boffins Apple keeps in a dark, Cupertino room feel that this is the best course of action to take in the ingoing Apple Vs Samsung debacle – a debacle that shows no sign of ending any time soon!

    It isn’t worth it. Samsung ain’t stopping Apple from selling. Plus if you can’t tell the difference between iPhone and the Galaxy, get glasses asap.

  • Samsung is the only considerable threat to apple in both phone and tablet market so it seems understandable that they want their top products out of the market,

    It’s totally worth it. Are you kidding me!? It’s so clear Samsung has ripped off the Apple brand. They knew what they were doing. They had the scimatics to work off of cause apple employed Samsung for stuff as we know.

    Really I hire you to make my parts and in turn you use them for your own. Products looks are debatable the outside may not look like it but the guts if you will are what matter in the end game

  • Cameron

    I bet you apple sue Samsung for using something like the a4 chip even though samsug made it!

  • I wanted to create you the little bit of remark so as to give many thanks yet again on your exceptional tips you’ve featured on this page. It was simply surprisingly open-handed of people like you to supply extensively what exactly a number of us would have made available for an e book to get some money on their own, certainly given that you could have done it in case you considered necessary. These things also worked as a easy way to be sure that other people online have the identical fervor just like my very own to see many more regarding this issue. I believe there are many more pleasurable moments in the future for many who find out your site.

    Apple knows their products are falling way behind the times. Their best solution is to attack with lawyers instead of improving their products. The Infuse makes the iPhone look like cheap Chinese knock-off junk. Oh wait. It IS cheap Chinese junk.

    Apple loses tons of sales because people are turned off by their unnecesarily predatory legal practices.
