Now, BJ Watrous, former deputy council for HP, is lists himself as the new guardian of iPhone, iPad, and Mac IP.

    Samsung asks ITC to ban import of iPhone, iPod, iPad

    The escalation continues in the dispute between Apple and Samsung, with the Korean conglomerate now asking the International Trade Commission (ITC) to ban the import of iPhones, iPods, and iPads.

    If the ITC agrees to investigate such a complaint (which is pretty certain to happen here), a final decision is reached within 16 to 18 months.

    Apple to move chipset production from Samsung to TSMC with Apple A6 SoC in 2012?

    Given the increasing legal contention between Apple and Samsung, perhaps it should come as no surprise that Apple is considering moving production of their next generation Apple A6 system-on-a-chip (SoC) to from the Korean conglomerate to Taiwan's TSMC.

    Apple ups the ante in Samsung "copy cat" lawsuit

    <img src="/sites/imore.com/files/styles/400w400h/public/images/stories/2011/05/galaxytab-10-redux-1.jpg" alt="Apple ups the ante in Samsung "copy cat" lawsuit" title=Apple ups the ante in Samsung "copy cat" lawsuit" width="400" height="280" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-63967" />

    Apple has upped the stakes in their look-and-feel "copy cat" lawsuit against Samsung, taking the complaint from 38 to 63 pages, and now accusing Samsung of "products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalize on Apple's success." According to FOSS Patents, Apple goes so far as to quote the media to help set up its case:

    Samsung demands to see iPhone 5, iPad 3

    According to This is my Next, after a judge ruled that Apple's outside council gets to see unreleased Samsung phones, Samsung has fired back demanding to see Apple's presumably upcoming iPhone 5 and iPad 3. Of course, part of the judge's ruling was based on Samsung having shown off or given away pre-release devices to the media and developers, and Apple absolutely does not breathe word one about their products until Steve Jobs or another exec holds them up on stage.

    Samsung countersues Apple for patent infringement

    Samsung has countersued Apple for the infringement of 5 patents, this in response to Apple's suit against Samsung for patent and trademark violations filed earlier this week.

    "Samsung is responding actively to the legal action taken against us in order to protect our intellectual property and to ensure our continued innovation and growth in the mobile communications business,"

    Apple's lawsuit seemed focused on preventing Samsung from copying the look and feel of iPhone and iPad in the Galaxy S line of tablets and TouchWiz skins. Samsung's seems focused on trying to match the patent portion. It will be interesting to see how they respond to the trademarks.

    Anyone else thinking that if they continued to innovate, they wouldn't be facing the trademark charges?
