Samsung files lawsuit against Apple in the UK

Patent dispute goes global
Samsung has filed another law suit against Apple, this time in our own fair city of London Town, alleging that – yes, you guessed it – Apple has infringed its patents.
It's beginning to feel a bit like Groundhog Day as far as Samsung v Apple is concerned.
A long time ago in a court room far far away…
It all stems from a lawsuit filed by Apple claiming that Samsung has infringed patents it holds for the iPhone and iPad on products including the Samsung Galaxy S and Samsung Galaxy Tab.
After that, it descended into a furore of counter-suits and counter-counter suits on varying continents.
When will it all end? Who knows – but with Apple having recently settled a similar dispute with Nokia, it seems likely that it will pursue this one to the bitter end.
