Another news from Samsung Electronics Co. regarding the war between them and Apple surfaces! Now Samsung has sued Apple in Japan and Australia to stop sales of the iPhone 4S. Samsung has also commented that they have even sought injunctions against the sales of the iPad 2 along with the previous generation of iPhone 4 in Japan.

So far we have seen that these companies are literally engaged in legal conflicts over the world since April this year, when Apple claimed Galaxy tab 10.1 looks exactly like their iPad. And for all these issues Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 faced a ban on sales in Australia and Europe, while Samsung filed motions in France and Italy seeks a ban on Apple’s latest handset.

 Samsung commented that Apple has continued to violate their patent rights and free ride on their technology and now they will not stand idly by and will steadfastly protect their intellectual property. Apple is also the biggest customer of Samsung in terms of chips and displays.

Steve Park, a Seoul-based spokesman for Apple, also commented while responding to the court filing as, It’s not a coincidence that Samsung’s latest products look like the iPhone and the iPad from shape to user interface and even packaging.

Samsung has also filed motions in Paris and Milan earlier this month regarding two patent infringements on wireless telecommunications technology, which might be aiming to prevent the sale of the iPhone 4S.
