08/26/2011, It appears that there’s yet another lawsuit filed against Samsung, and this time it’s in Russia. Before you think that Apple is chasing Samsung with lawsuits to all corners of the globe, this is not the case here, but rather a Volga-based company, Simbirsk-Crown, is the one doing the suing here.
08/25/2011, Protecting intellectual property is important as it encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, but given the recent wave of patent wars in the tech world we have to wonder where the line is drawn between protecting your IP rights and abusing the system.
08/24/2011, A while back we reported that Apple was seeking not only to just ban the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the Netherlands, but also the Galaxy series of smartphones by the Korean company.

08/19/2011, To kick start the end of your working week; we’ve got one of the most interesting lawsuits of late. No it’s not another Apple vs. Android patent fight but rather, it’s a lawsuit from a California porn studio called Imperial Enterprises. Imperial Enterprises recently sued 3,500 people for illegally downloading the company’s pornographic content, but one of the defendants claimed that there was no way he would or could have […]
08/18/2011, If you have been keeping track of the recent Apple vs Samsung legal proceedings in the EU, you will probably know by now that the German courts have lifted the injunction after they realized that they did not have the power to do a blanket injunction of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which means Germany is the only country in which the injunction is still in effect.
08/18/2011, It didn’t take very long: there’s nothing like the word “billion” to attract lawsuits these days. The lawsuit doesn’t come from a competitor wary that Motorola and Google (aka Moogle) may be a threat. Instead, it comes from an investor who thinks that a 60% premium over Motorola’s market value was… too low. Investor John W. Keating writes in his filing: “The offered consideration does not compensate shareholders for the […]
08/18/2011, After clamping down on fake Apple stores in China, Apple is now on the receiving end of a new lawsuit, and this time it’s being delivered by a well-known consumer rights advocate in China. The complaint? Apparently Apple has been passing off refurbished iPhones as brand new devices and selling them at full price to consumers. The scheme was discovered when some consumers who purchased the iPhone registered their phones […]
08/16/2011, After being sued by Apple not too long ago, it looks like HTC is turning the tables around and throwing the ball back into Apple’s park by countersuing them. Reuters has reported that HTC has just filed a lawsuit in the US District Court of Delaware against Apple, claiming that the Cupertino company is violating two patents by selling its line of Mac computers, iPads, iPhones, iPods and other devices. […]
08/15/2011, I am sure that most will be familiar about the news where Apple managed to get an injunction against Samsung in most of the EU, thus preventing the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being sold for now. Naturally Samsung was a bit miffed about this, and thanks to what appears to be the evidence Apple used against Samsung, we now know why.

08/12/2011, It seems that lately all the big boys in the tech industry have been taking swings at each other. We have Apple vs Samsung, Apple vs Motorola, Sony vs LG (who have since settled their lawsuit), and now possibly Google vs Microsoft?
08/10/2011, Remember the whole iPhone 4 incident that happened over a year ago? When a prototype iPhone 4 was found in a bar and sold to Gizmodo, which then did an exclusive feature on the device and leaked it to the world? Well, according to the latest reports, it turns out that all charges against Gizmodo have been dropped. What about the men who found the iPhone 4 prototype at the bar? […]
08/10/2011, Apple seems to be on a roll lately with all these new lawsuits popping up. Their currently legal battle against Samsung over patent infringement has led to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 having its sales halted in both Australia and the EU (with the exception of the Netherlands, who is reportedly next on the list). Now it seems that Apple has a new target in sight and this time they […]
08/10/2011, A little over a week ago we reported that Apple had managed to halt the sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia. Samsung responded by saying that they will still push ahead for the launch of an Australia version of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which has led some to believe that Samsung may be skirting around the issue by changing some of the hardware which was not part […]
