Now that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) has Samsung by the throat — at least legally — it plans to strangle the South Korean firm’s smartphone division to death. Apple added to its lawsuit filed in District Court complaints which include Samsung products not included in its victory over seven patents it owns, which resulted in over $1 billion in penalties.
The new filing means to block the sales of Samsung’s wildly popular Galaxy S III.
According to Reuters:
In February, Apple alleged that at least 17 Samsung products infringe its patents. In a court filing made in San Jose federal court on Friday, Apple added four more products to the list of allegedly infringing products that have been
released beginning in August 2011 and continuing through this month.
