Samsung All Set To Invite The iPhone 5 To Its VIP List Of Patent Infringing Devices To The Party

It was only a matter of time before Samsung threw the next slap in its epic catfight against Apple. After Apple’s massive victory, Samsung vowing sweet revenge and of course, the recent release of the iPhone 5 smartphone, Samsung has gone ahead and asked the courts to allow it to include the iPhone 5 in its countersuit. In this filing, Samsung alleges Apple infringed on the same patents as other devices which includes standards-essential 3G patents and specific feature patents. The countersuit is still quite young and developing, so it’s uncertain of whether or not the courts will allow it to include the iPhone 5 added to the list of devices to flag for. Then again, there is the belief that Samsung will be allowed to include the iPhone 5 among the infringing devices, so we should formally see it when both parties convene in November.

So where we stand now is Apple trying to ban many Samsung devices for infringement, while Samsung on the other hand, has filed a counterclaim and is now trying to ban multiple Apple devices on the basis of 3G and LTE standards. Boy, oh boy this is getting tough to keep track of. Sheesh.

    Samsung has got some big cajones. It would be terrible if Samsung losses and has to pay instead.
