Samsung seeking ban on iPhone 5 in South Korea

The Apple-Samsung war is heating up. According to a new report, Samsung is trying to ban Apple’s unannounced, unreleased products in South Korea.

A senior executive at the South Korean electronics giant indicated to the Korea Times that the company is already planning a legal strategy to block the release of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5 in Korea. The launch of the latest version of its Galaxy tablet in Australia has been delayed until a final judgment on the patent infringement case.

The report quotes, "Just after the arrival of the iPhone 5 here, Samsung plans to take Apple to court here [in S. Korea] for its violation of Samsung’s wireless technology-related patents.

"For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents. We will stick to a strong stance against Apple during the lingering legal fights."

It seems the escalating patent war between the two tech firms has not affected their commercial ties so far. Samsung is Apple’s largest supplier of components used in its iPad and iPhone products.

Legal spats across the globe:- This is the latest fallout between the two companies that are engaged in legal spats.

It began in April when the companies clashed after Apple filed a suit against Samsung in the United States, accusing the Korean company of blatantly copying design of its iPad and iPhone. Apple then won a ruling in the Dusseldorf court, which prohibited sale and promotion of Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany in August.

Samsung was also forced to pull out the Galaxy Tab 7.7 at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) in Berlin, after Apple won a preliminary injunction, blocking its sale and marketing in Germany.

Imports of three Samsung smartphones are banned in Netherlands for infringing Apple's patent. Also, the launch of the latest version of its Galaxy tablet in Australia has been delayed until a final judgment on the patent infringement case.

Business relationship of two companies:- It seems the escalating patent war between the two tech firms has not affected their commercial ties so far. Samsung is Apple’s largest supplier of components used in its iPad and iPhone products. In fact, Apple has reportedly spent close to $7 billion dollars on Samsung hardware parts in 2001.

Samsung CEO Choi Gee-Sung comments, "Apple is Samsung’s biggest customer. Hewlett-Packard (HP), Nokia and Sony were Samsung’s previous big clients, however, Apple is now a primary one. From our perspective, we are not entirely happy (about the litigations)."
