Samsung Plans to block iPhone 4S Sales in France and Italy
 

Samsung just announced that the company will file separate preliminary injunction motions in 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.

We have reported before that Samsung is planing to go against the new iPhone once Apple is announcing it. Now this is really happening. Samsung announced today that they will file separate preliminary injunction motions in 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 preliminary injunction requests in France and Italy will each cite two patent infringements related to wireless telecommunications technology, specifically Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) standards for 3G mobile handsets.

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

Samsung plans to file preliminary injunctions in other countries after further review.

With this move, Samsung declares now complete war on Apple. Of course Apple started the sales ban game. They got a sales ban on the Samsung Galaxy Tab in Germany. A sales ban or delay of the iPhone 4S is not acceptable for Apple by all means. Apple, what is your next move?
