Samsung want the iPhone 4S banned

It’s barely a glint in the eye of Old Mother Apple, but Samsung are already making moves to have the newly-revealed iPhone 4S banned.

The ongoing patent dispute between the two parties will now see Samsung attempt to have a sales ban put on the iPhone 4S in territories including France and Italy.

With the move described as “all-out war”, Samsung will file two new preliminary injunctions against Apple, claiming the iPhone 4 hardware update infringes on two Samsung-owned patents. Samsung have not yet gone into specifics as to what the patents in question are.

“Apple has continued to flagrantly violate our intellectual property rights and free-ride on our technology, and we will steadfastly protect our intellectual property,” said a Samsung spokesperson.

The long-running battle between the two has already led to headaches for tech fans looking to grab the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, which was banned in Australia, Germany and even the UK for a short spell.
