Samsung now sued by Apple in the UK
Apple has quietly filed a lawsuit as of this past Monday in the UK's High Court. The move is a countersuit to a lawsuit Samsung filed against Apple in the country back in June. Exactly which patents are at question hasn't been specified in either case, however.
Apple has recently sued Samsung in the latter's home market of Korea and even more recently brought this legal war to Japan as well.
Apple was recently awarded a preliminary ban on Samsung selling Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets in Germany during a trial, which was upheld after Samsung appealed it. The Korean company launched another formal appeal in a higher court.
