Apple Vs Samsung

Apple denied injunction in the U.S., licensed patent to Nokia and IBM, fighting FRAND with Motoro

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/images/stories/2011/11/galaxy-nexus-iphone-11.jpg" alt=Apple denied injunction in the U.S., making FRAND case in Germany" title="Apple denied injunction in the U.S., making FRAND case in Germany" width="550" height="385" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-84966" />

We haven't really been keeping up with all the myriad legal maneuverings in the ongoing -- and going, and going -- legal disputes between Apple and accused "copyist" Samsung, as well as other Android manufacturers like Motorola, but there have been some injunctions granted, refused, overturned, and asked for review. If you're thinking there's just too much of this stuff and no one cares who's not a lawyer on one of their payroll, well, fair enough. Here are the highlights/lowlights.

Samsung mocks Apple iPhone users in Galaxy S II commercial

Interesting new ad/tactic from Samsung, painting those devoted Apple users who line up from the iPhone 4S as fanboy hipster sheep whose faces are stuck to the blogs -- reading about battery life issues and lack of design changes -- until a giant-screened, 4G powered, Galaxy S II tears them away.

Also interesting that Samsung only focuses on the size of the screen and speed of the radio -- and not at all about the Android operating system that runs it.

Make anyone want to dump their new iPhone for a Galaxy S II?

Samsung wants iOS source code, carrier contracts, to depose Jony Ive,

The demands and counter-demands in Apple vs. Samsung are reaching tragically comedic, or comedically tragic levels:

In Federal court today Samsung counsel Cynthia Cochrane said her client would need the source code for the iPhone 4S and agreements Apple had with major carriers Vodafone, Telstra and Optus in order to make a legal case for a ban before the court.
