Samsung faz quatro novas acusações contra Apple na Alemanha


A Samsung Electronics abriu novas acusações contra a Apple na Alemanha, em meio à guerra de patentes contra a empresa, anunciou um porta-voz da companhia sul-coreana nesta segunda-feira.

A Samsung acrescentou quatro patentes relacionadas à tecnologia WCDMA para celulares 3G ao caso que tinha aberto em abril, segundo o representante.

Na sexta-feira, uma corte regional alemã em Mannheim fez uma audiência sobre o caso aberto em abril e disse que anunciaria uma decisão em 2 de março, segundo o porta-voz da Samsung.

A Samsung ganhou um round da luta que ocorre em várias frentes no mundo quando um tribunal australiano suspendeu no início de dezembro a proibição de venda do tablet Galaxy.

Samsung expands patent row with Apple in Germany


Samsung Electronics has filed new claims in its patent war with Apple Inc over alleged patent infringements in Germany, a spokesman for the company said on Monday.


The tech giant added four patents to its ongoing infringement case related to the telecommunications standard technology WCDMA for 3G mobile handsets, which was filed in April, the spokesman said.


The four new complaints, including use of emoticons, come as the worldwide patent battle between Apple and smartphone rival Samsung continues to escalate.


"(Samsung) made four more claims; two are standard-related patents and the other two are utility patents. And a court said it would make these claims separate from the April lawsuit," the spokesman said.


On Friday, a regional German court in Mannheim held a hearing on the April case, saying it would announce a ruling on March 2, the Samsung spokesman said.


Samsung won a round of its bruising global patent fight when an Australian court lifted a ban on the sale of its Galaxy table computer earlier in December.
