Reports Reveal Apple Changing Patent Infringement Filing Against Samsung

New reports have revealed that Apple is opting for some significant changes in its patent infringement filing against Samsung in order to strengthen its hold over the case, and prevent the Korean electronics giant from gaining access to the disputed products.

Apple earlier dragged Samsung into the court for allegedly creating "products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalise on Apple's success".

Earlier, the iPhone maker accused Samsung of “misappropriating” its designs, but now has gone even further by charging it with “copying”, a move, seen by many as an desperate attempt by the company to add more weight into the case.

"By making it clear that only particular generations of the iPad and iPhone product lines are relevant to the case, Apple tries to make it even harder for Samsung to convince the court that it should get access to future Apple products," Software patent expert Florian Mueller wrote on a Foss Patents Blog (opens in new tab).

Also, adding more worries for Samsung, Apple has formally included the high-profile products like Galaxy S2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, Droid Charge, Nexus S 4G in the list of alleged infringed product.
