According to a statement provided to Reuters by Samsung, Samsung has filed a new set of patent-related lawsuits against rival Apple in Samsung's home market of South Korea.
The new suit claims that three of Samsung's patents are infringed upon by Apple's iPhone 4S and iPad 2. The announcement of the new patent suit was made mere hours before an Apple event where we expect to see the unveiling of the third generation of Apple's iPad tablet, the iPad HD.
According to Samsung, the three patents named are utility based, and not integral to standards that Samsung has promised to license under
In an exchange with Korea Times, Samsung Telecommunications president J.K. Shin told the publication that there would be no compromise with Apple. The statement was made after it was revealed that Apple attempted to offer licensing terms to Samsung in an effort to bring litigation between the two companies to a close.
