Samsung has Filled Eight New Patents Against Apple

Samsung vs AppleAlthough a few hours ago the news that Apple and Samsung have agreed to meet to discuss a possible agreement in order to write the word at the bottom of what is one of the biggest legal battles in the history of technology, the story is reignites thanks to a new attack by one of the two companies.To move on the break is Samsung, which has decided to respond to the accusations rained in the month of February and have filed with the District Court of Northern California, a new complaint, accompanied by eight patents , with Apple as the recipient.

In particular, two of the eight patents in question were deemed to be essential for the Samsung ETSI standard distributed and therefore with FRAND license . Two other patents, however, according to South Korean group have already been allocated to Apple in the past, with clear evidence of violations enacted by the Cupertino giant, however, that no decisions were taken in this regard. Of these two, one would also been previously inputted in a first complaint moved by Samsung, except then be removed at the last moment.

Specifically, these patents thrown by Samsung:

  • U.S. Patent No. 7,756,087  : “Apparatus and method for performing non-scheduled transmission in a mobile communication system for supporting an enhanced uplink data channel” (iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, New iPad, and iPad 2);
  • U.S. Patent No. 7,756,087  : “Apparatus and method for performing non-scheduled transmission in a mobile communication system for supporting an enhanced uplink data channel” (iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, New iPad, and iPad 2);
  • U.S. Patent No. 7,551,596  : “Apparatus and method for signaling control information of uplink packet data service in mobile communication system” (iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, New iPad, and iPad 2);
  • U.S. Patent No. 7,672,470  : “audio / video device Having a volume control function for an external audio reproduction unit by using the volume control buttons of a remote controller and control volume method Therefor” (iPhone, iPad, iPod);
  • U.S. Patent No. 7,577,757  , “Multimedia synchronization method and device” (iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, Apple TV, iTunes and icloud);
  • U.S. Patent No. 7,232,058  : “data displaying apparatus and method” (iPad);
  • U.S. Patent No. 6,292,179  : “System software keyboard using trace of stylus on a touch screen and method for Recognizing key code using the same” (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch);
  • U.S. Patent No. 6,226,449  : “Apparatus for recording and reproducing digital image and speech” (iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac);
  • U.S. Patent No. 5,579,239  : “remote video transmission system” (iPhone, iPad 3G with video camera).

The clash between the two giants of the technology industry is enriched with a further episode, which follows the already several attempts by the two companies to enforce their rights in court. Specifically, the issue of yet another complaint from Asian companies against Apple in Cupertino, with similar cases in nine other countries, none of which has been or would seem destined to have positive results for the group of South Korean origin, which nevertheless continues to insist on the way the paradigm that the attack is the best defense.

Apple, for that matter, demonstrated on several occasions also to believe in this motto, sending numerous patents against Samsung, strong in its portfolio which may include several thousands of intellectual property to be used occasionally as a weapon to unleash further to impose its hegemony on the high-tech market. The clash between the parties, in short, could be further from its conclusion than implied by only a few hours ago.
