Apple has added six Samsung products including the Note II, SIII mini and Galaxy tab to its California lawsuit, reports “FOSS Patents” (http://macte.ch/MdTKC).
Apple’s motion highlights that all of these products (or product upgrades) were released after the fifth-generation iPod touch Samsung would like to include in this lawsuit, “a fact that should make it difficult for the court to allow Samsung the addition of the fifth-generation iPod touch (apparently already released in early October) while denying Apple’s latest proposed additions as untimely,” the article adds.
This is all part of the ongoing, global legal battle. Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iPhone and iPad devices.
