Samsung Retaliates Against Ericsson With Patent Complaint 43

An anonymous reader writes "The wireless patent wars don't pause at Christmas time, keeping numerous IP lawyers (and a certain litigation watcher) busy even at this time of year. No one seriously expected Samsung to turn the other cheek when Ericsson sued it and requested a U.S. import ban against a host of Galaxy devices. The Korean electronics giant, which is increasingly competing with Ericsson in the telecoms infrastructure market, just filed an ITC complaint of its own. The title of the complaint is Certain Wireless Communication Equipment and Articles Therein. That description would apply to dozens, no: hundreds, of patent lawsuits in the world. The complaint has not been published yet, but it would be out of character for Samsung not to assert some of its patents on wireless industry standards (and maybe some others, too)."

    Yeah, total coincidence Samsung ignored this blatent infringement for years and only filed a lawsuit after Erricsson did first. On second thought, maybe your dictionary is broken.

    retaliate (v) make a counterattack and return like for like, especially evil for evil; (and this is slashdot, where patents are evil).

The Macintosh is Xerox technology at its best.
