Apple Sues Samsung
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Apple has sued Samsung for accusing them of copying their designs of Apple's most popular devices, the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

From claiming that Samsung have ripped of their designes and technoligies, to going as far as saying that Samsung have even copied their packaging, Apple seem to think they are on fair grounds to say Samsung are unfairly taking away Apple's consumers.

I for one do not think that this is fair by Apple, as they state that Samsung have copied the iPhone and iPad with the Galaxy and Galaxy tab. Yes, they do look similar and are used for pretty much the same thing, but the iPhone and iPad are revolutions, and having competitiors of such popular products is inevitable.

In Apple's defence Samsung may have tried to make another iPhone and iPad instead of producing an alternative, but I still think that the two Samsung devices are unique enough to be safe from these sort of allegations.

Samsung representatives made no comment on the lawsuit, and Apple representatives could not be reached for comment.

The charges are not limited to the Galaxy devices, but do extent over a wide range of Samsung’s mobile devices for so called copying of Apple's designs and technoilogies, other designs in question include the Samsung:

• Epic 4G

• Captivate

• Indulge

• Nexus S

Apple claim that the extend of copying is to such a high degree that Samsung Galaxy produtcs actually appear to be Apple products. Apple claim that consumers then confuse Samsung products with Samsung Galaxy products, thus having a direct positive impact on Samsung profits and a negative impact on Apple's profits. - Yeah right, as if anyone has purchased a Galaxy tab thinkning it was an iPad. Good one Apple.

Apple claimed that Samsung continued to make repeated violations despite numerous objections by Apple, leaving Apple with no choice but to sue.

In other words, Apple are being big greedy giants and can't stand that Samsung are an actual competitor to Apple devices.

Apple outlined various elements of the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad that Samsung have copied. Some of these include:

• The Rectangular case with rounded corners

• The metallic edges and black bands that are at the top and bottom of the iPhone and iPod Touch and surrounding all sides of the iPad screen

• The application icons for Samsung devices that are very similar to Apple’s icons for the phone, notepad, music player, settings and contacts.

• The box and packaging designs.

• The design of the slim buttons on the sides of its devices

• The text messaging interface.

As mentioned earlier, having competition on these type of products is pretty much inevitable, and I for one do not see Samsung overtaking Apple anytime in the near future. Suck it up Apple.
