Apple sues Samsung in Japan for patent infringement

It’s just another day in the Android world and that means another lawsuit. Today’s news is out of Japan where Apple is suing Samsung seeking suspension of the Galaxy S, Galaxy S II, and the Galaxy Tab. The first hearing took place yesterday in the Tokyo District Court. Of course it is no surprise that the Galaxy S outsold the iPhone from January-March.

Apple and Samsung are involved in suits in the U.S., Australia, Korean, and Europe. Samsung filed a suit against Apple in Japan in April, but Apple countersued on August 23rd. Apple is seeking 100 million yen ($1.3 million) in damages and a sales ban.
