Apple sues Samsung for allegedly copying the iPad


It’s way past fighting words now as Apple has filed a lawsuit against Tech giant Samsung over allegedly copying the look, product design and even the packaging and user interface of its products. The 38-page suit was filed Friday in federal court in Northern California. “Rather than innovate and develop its own technology and a unique Samsung style for its smart phone products and computer tablets, Samsung chose to copy Apple’s technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products.”

This isn’t the first time Apple has sued a competitor. It sued Nokia back in 2009 and HTC last year over patent issues as well. Some has expressed concern in the suit, as they feel it’s better to use the money the use for lawsuits for R&D and innovation. The suit will likely drag on for a while, as both parties have extremely deep pockets to call on.
