Apple amends Samsung complaint, adds more products

Apple has amended and expanded its complaint against Samsung ahead of a ruling as to whether or not Apple will receive samples of upcoming Samsung devices. FOSS Patents reports that new language in the amended complaint portrays Samsung as being “even bolder” than other competitors in copying Apple’s designs and has created “products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple’s products to capitalize on Apple’s success.” Apple also added a portion explaining the time and work that went in to create the basic iPhone look and feel, as well as examples from journalism which directly call out certain Samsung products as being copies.

Added to the devices listed in the prior complaint—the Samsung Captivate, Continuum, Vibrant, Galaxy S 4G, Epic 4G, Indulge, Mesmerize, Showcase, Fascinate, Nexus S, Gem, Transform, Intercept, and Acclaim smart phones and the Samsung Galaxy Tab tablet—are the Droid Charge, Exhibit 4G, Galaxy Ace, Galaxy Prevail, Galaxy S (i9000), Gravity, Infuse 4G, Nexus S 4G, Replenish, Sidekick, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and Galaxy S II (aka Galaxy S 2). Finally, Apple also removed two utility and one design patents from the complaint while adding three utility and five design patents, and also clarified its trade dress claims to make clear distinctions between different product generations.
