Apple has filed a lawsuit against Samsung for allegedly ‘copying’ Apples user interface and design features. Apple claims that Samsung is infringing on its patents and practicing unfair competition. An Apple representative has been quoted as saying “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. This kind of blatant copying is wrong, and we need to protect Apple’s intellectual property when companies steal our ideas”

Samsung vs Apple...FIGHT!
This whole debacle is interesting as Samsung is both a competitor and a supplier to Apple. Samsung supplies parts of Apple’s A4 and A5 processors, which are used in a multitude of Apple products. Samsung has recently hit back at Apple, accusing them of infringing on 10 of Samsung’s patents. One of those features include the ability to use the Web whilst on a phone call (something the iPhone prides itself on…Hmmmm)

It will be very interesting to see how this will pan out. Who do you think is right in this case?

 Tech it or leave it :p
