Samsung to block iPhone 4S sales in France, Italy, lay the smackdown on Apple's big day

Samsung file lawsuit to block sales of Apple's iPhone 4S in France and Italy
| BREAKING STORY News | Posted: Oct 5, 2011 10:15 am

Samsung Electronics have just announced they will file separate preliminary injunction motions against Paris, France and Milano, Italy on October 5 local time requesting the courts block the sale of Apple's iPhone 4S in the respective markets. Samsung's requests in France and Italy will each cite two patent infringements related to wireless telecommunications technology, specifically Wireband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) standards for 3G mobile handsets.




The patent they refer to is essential to the reliable functioning of telecom networks and devices and Samsung believes that Apple's violation as being too severe and that the iPhone 4S should be barred from sales. This bit is the bit that puts a smile on my Samsung lovin' dial:


Apple has continued to flagrantly violate our intellectual property rights and free ride on our technology. We believe it is now necessary to take legal action to protect our innovation.
