The legal battle between Samsung and Apple has once again taken a surprising turn. Last week, the Korean manufacturer was compelled by the courts to reveal five products to the California based company in order to help the latter gather evidence for the ongoing infringement case.
Refusing to be idly pushed around, Samsung retaliates with a demand of their own, asking the courts that Apple reveal the “final, commercial versions” of the unannounced iPad 3 and iPhone 5. This request is justified by Sammy’s claim that they must know what the products look like before they are released, in order to avoid any further legal disputes in the future.
The wave of patent infringement lawsuits first began when Apple claimed the interface and design of the iPad and iPhone were imitated, thus resulting in “unfair competition”.
