TOKYO (Reuters) – Apple is suing Samsung Electronics in Japan, accusing it of patent violations relating to the iPhone and iPad, Kyodo news agency said, the latest salvo in a series of patent battles between the two firms.
California-based Apple has filed a suit with the Tokyo District Court seeking the suspension of sales of Samsung Galaxy phones in Japan, as well as 100 million yen ($1.3 million) in damages, Kyodo added, citing sources familiar with the matter.
Last month Samsung announced it would delay the launch of its latest Galaxy tablet computer in Australia until after a court ruling in late September. Last week a German court banned sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 7.7.
