“Samsung Electronics has hit Apple with four patent cases in district court in The Hague, Netherlands, demanding a sales ban and a retail recall of all Apple products that use 3G technology,” Andreas Udo de Haes reports for IDG News Service.
“The first hearing in the case is scheduled for Monday. Samsung in The Netherlands is demanding a preliminary injunction against all mobile products of Apple ‘specifically iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 1, and iPad 2,'” Udo de Haes reports. “All these devices infringe four of Samsung’s essential 3G patents, the Korea-based tech giant claims in the complaints, which Webwereld, a Dutch IDG publication, has viewed.”
