Samsung files lawsuits in three countries, citing 10 patent violations

Earlier this week, we reported that Apple filed a lawsuit against Samsung for copying certain design aspects of its popular iPhone. "Samsung chose to copy Apple's technology, user interface and innovative style in these infringing products," Apple claimed in the lawsuit.

Unfazed by Apple's lawsuit, Samsung responded that Apple was in fact infringing on some of its patents, adding, "Samsung will respond actively to this legal action taken against us through appropriate legal measures to protect our intellectual property." 

Samsung is now backing up those words with some legal action of its own. The company has filed lawsuits in South Korea, Japan, and Germany citing ten cases of patent infringement by Apple.

Samsung added that this legal action will "ensure our continued innovation and growth in the mobile communications business."

According to Reuters, Samsung claims that Apple is violating its patents related to "power reduction during data transmission, 3G technology for reducing errors during data transmission, and wireless data communication technology."

Apple and Samsung are close business partners, and Apple is currently Samsung's second largest customer. Thanks to strong sales of the iPad and iPhone, Reuters expects Apple to become Samsung's largest customer during 2011.
