Lawyer fight! After Apple sued Samsung up and down for alleged mobile patent infringement, the defense has wasted little time in mounting a counterattack of the "no, YOU are" variety. Samsung has filed complaints against Apple in Seoul, Tokyo, and Germany, saying that Apple in fact infringed on their patents.
It's nothing new that everybody's suing everybody in mobile. But Samsung's one of Apple's major components suppliers, and it's a little unusual to see two companies so dependent on each other come out swinging this hard. But don't worry, kids! This one will end like they all do: one multibillion dollar company paying another multibillion dollar company piles of cash, that will be used exclusively to light victory cigars. [Bloomberg]
