Samsung claims that Apple is violating its wireless technology patents

We reported yesterday that Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung in which it claimed that the South Korean company has copied elements of its hardware and software design. The prime offender appears to be the Samsung Galaxy S which does seem to "borrow" some exterior design and UI elements from Apple's iPhone 3GS.

Today, however, Samsung is making it clear that it doesn't intend to go down without a fight. Samsung -- a company which actually provides semiconductor chips and display panels for Apple's mobile products -- didn't actually refute Apple "copycat" claims in a statement to Yonhap News Agency, but did note that "We have no choice but respond strongly this time."

Instead of directly countering Apple's claims, Samsung made a few claims of its own with the revelation that Apple is infringing on its wireless patents. 

"Samsung will respond actively to this legal action taken against us through appropriate legal measures to protect our intellectual property," Samsung continued in a statement. 

Apple may have drawn first blood in this battle between two tech giants, but we're certain that the two players will come to some sort of mutual agreement before a real bloodbath starts. After all, Apple was Samsung's second largest customer last year with over $5.68B in purchases.
