    South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co. said it is suing Apple Inc. for patent rights violations, only days after Apple sued Samsung for the same reason.

    Samsung is accusing Apple of violating its rights to 10 smartphone and computer patents. The company filed lawsuits Thursday in Seoul, Tokyo and Mannheim, Germany.

    The lawsuits come only days after Apple sued Samsung in a California court. Apple alleges Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones and tablet computers copy Apple's popular iPad and iPhone.

    IIRC they're all about wireless communication (Wifi and 3G)

    The American way of doing things.

    "Amma gonna sue you!" "Not if I can help it! I'mma gonna sue you too!"

    For what? For designs that have been around for years and have been used in a quadrilion of devices.

    ...and the tax payers pay for the trial.

    I'm sorry for being blunt, but this is sandbox-fight-level lawsuit-spouting. The desings in question are (among others) the GUI style and the general shape of the device.

    It's like having one cuttlery-producing company sue another cuttlery-producing company because their forks happen to have 5 spikes and one of them did that first.

    The GUI and the device may look similar, but they're not "the same". The menus work on different OS'es entirely and have different icons. Both were developed separately and have nothing in common. It's a WASTE OF TIME.

    I sue you, you sue me, we're a happy family. With the court and the sues and the blaming to be made, I just love all this hate.

    if i am not mistaken, something similar happened in the REAL world whereby US criticized China (not sure) for something China denied and criticized America for a whole lot of things too

    This isn't greed... It's actually kind of the opposite of greed (sorta).
    Clearly Samsung new about the infringement by Apple but chose to let it slide because they were business partners -- keeping a smooth business was good for both parties (I guess you could call that "greed", since it most likely made them more money in the long run than a lawsuit would have). But now that Apple is suing them, they're playing their hand.

    ...And to your left you'll see the 2-year-olds of the technology industry throwing lawsuits at each other like monkeys throw poop.

    Nice post... but you fail for one reason: You expect people to actually READ the things they comment on.
    This is the internet, there is no place for comments that aren't headline-based, knee-jerk, instant reactions.
