Earlier on we reported that Apple supposedly was attempting to offer licensing deals to their Android competitors, namely Samsung and Motorola, both of whom are currently embroiled in a fierce legal battle over patent infringements, but it looks like either the deal wasn’t enticing enough, or Samsung didn’t receive the memo, but the company has recently filed a new lawsuit against Apple in South Korea.
Once again we guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this new lawsuit is over alleged patent infringements, three of them to be exact. The South Korean company is claiming that Apple’s iPhone 4S and iPad 2 allegedly infringed upon three of its utility patents which includes the way data is displayed. This is basically an aspect of the iOS user interface and the way that Apple has implemented SMS. We’re not sure what the end result here will be, but hopefully all the companies involved will eventually reach some sort of settlement and cease this patent war, which in all honesty has been dragged out long enough.
