Apple Files ITC Complaint Against Samsung

Apple Inc. filed a U.S. trade complaint that seeks to block imports of Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy S mobile phone and Galaxy Tab computer, days after asking a federal court to halt sales of the devices. The complaint submitted with the U.S. International Trade Commission in Washington counters patent- infringement claims Samsung filed at the agency that seek to block imports of Apple’s iPhone and iPad. Cupertino, California-based Apple claims Samsung is infringing seven patents related to the technology and design of the devices.
