∞ Apple sues Samsung for copying iPhone and iPad

Apple on Monday filed a lawsuit against Samsung claiming the electronics company copied its iPhone and iPad products.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Specifically named in the lawsuit are the “Galaxy S 4G,” “Epic 4G,” “Nexus S” and the “Galaxy Tab,” Samsung’s iPad competitor, according to the Wall Street Journal.

“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,” reads the lawsuit.

Samsung did not respond to AllThingsD’s requests for comment, but Apple sure did.

“It’s no coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look a lot like the iPhone and iPad, from the shape of the hardware to the user interface and even the packaging,” an Apple representative told Mobilized. “This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas.”
