Following Apple’s filing of a lawsuit against Samsung in the U.S., Samsung has countersued the company, claiming infringement on 10 mobile technology patents by the iPhone and iPad. Samsung filed the suits in its home country of South Korea, Japan, and Germany, and said the patents involve power reduction during data transmission, 3G technology for reducing errors while transmitting data, and wireless data communication technology, according to Reuters. “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,” the company said in a statement. During the company’s Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results Conference Call, Apple COO Tim Cook addressed the lawsuit against Samsung, saying that Apple is Samsung’s biggest customer and considers them a valued component supplier, and that he expects their strong relationship to continue despite the lawsuit.

With all the knock off items being manufactured in South Kora, I’m guessing Samsung’s guilty.
