Earlier this week saw Apple describe Samsung's request for access to the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 as "an improper attempt to harass" and now Apple has piled it on in the suit, expanding the number of products and patents that Samsung has allegedly infringed on right before the court hearing concerning Samsung's request for the unannounced iDevices. In its amended complaint, Apple claims that Samsung has been "even bolder" than other companies in creating products similar to Apple's and that Samsung has made "products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalize on Apple's success."
Speaking of products, Apple's original complaint alleged that Samsung's Galaxy S variants as well as devices like the Nexus S and Gem infringed on its patents, but today Apple has added even more products to its claim. Those devices include the DROID Charge, Sidekick 4G, Exhibit 4G, Infuse 4G, Nexus S 4G, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and the Galaxy S II. Additionally, Apple has gone all the way back to 2007 to point toward the Samsung F700 as the first device that is allegedly guilty of "copying the clean flat clear surface of the Apple iPhone Trade Dress and the Apple iPhone/iPhone 3G/iPhone 4 Trade Dress."
Obviously we still haven't heard anything from the courts yet regarding either company's claims or Apple's decision on whether or not to file for a preliminary injunction against Samsung and its devices like the DROID Charge and Galaxy S II, but Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents believes that it's "reasonably likely" that Apple will end up requesting an injunction. Mueller goes on to say that "[if] the court appeared to give serious consideration to this measure," Samsung could be put under quite a bit of pressure and that the possibility of a settlement in Apple's favor in the near future would increase. We'll continue to keep a close eye on this suit as it continues, so stay tuned.
