Legal "Samsung made comments early Friday about going on the offensive with its ongoing patent dispute with Apple, and it appears to be putting its money (and its lawyers) where its mouth is. The Korean company just filed a complaint with The Hague, seeking a ban on all sales of Apple's smartphones and tablets due to alleged infringement of four of its wireless mobile technology patents. Dutch site Webwereld.nl has the details of the new complaint filed with The Hague, which relates specifically to 3G mobile networking technologies, as well as technologies governing the transfer rate of data to mobile devices over a cellular network. Samsung's complaint covers Apple itself, as well as five other private companies that manage Apple's sales and distribution channels in the Netherlands." I'll be following the Twitter feeds from The Hague closely coming Monday when the meeting about possible FRAND licensing takes place. Let's hope Samsung manages to pull an injunction out of all this.

Not only that but they (CEO of VIA and Chairwoman/co-founder of HTC) are actually husband and wife.

The main issue is the license between Apple and ARM here, though.

As far as this lawsuit goes I am sorry to say that I think Samsung is doing a big mistake in using FRAND patents.

I hope Samsung manages to ban all Apple products. And then I hope Apple bans all Samsung products. After which all other products ever made is banned by everyone else. Maybe then someone with power will think "Hey, something seems to be wrong here..."

Best comment I have ever read. Let's hope the "Hey, something seems to be wrong here..." part comes a lot sooner if it ever comes.
