Samsung says Ericsson is infringing on its patents
Samsung Electronics has announced that it has filed a complaint against Ericsson in the United States with the International Trade Commission. Samsung is seeking a ban on the U.S. import and sale of several products Ericsson makes due to patent violations.
"We have sought to negotiate with Ericsson in good faith. However, Ericsson has proven unwilling to continue such negotiations by making unreasonable claims, which it is now trying to enforce in court," Samsung Electronics said in a statement.
"The accused Ericsson products include telecommunications networking equipment, such as base stations," Samsung said.
Samsung’s share of the networking equipment market is a drop in the bucket compared to Ericsson, but that latter has suffered a significant drop in sales in its network equipment unit. During Q3 of this year, Ericsson saw a 17% decline in sales.
This certainly isn't the only patent litigation that Samsung is undertaking. Samsung and Apple are still battling in court in multiple countries. Apple has
against Samsung for alleged patent infringement on mobile products while Samsung has countersued Apple with the same claims.

"if you keep going after other companies, you start to act like Apple themselves - and then you're going to piss off intelligent people too."
Exactly. Samsung seriously needs to stop this crap. Enough.

This set of lawsuits is apparently regarding networking equipment - not cell phone handsets. It's a whole different ballpark from the ongoing "mobile wars".
Whether or not the claims have merit... there's just not enough info to say. Quick search of Google News did not turn up any references to actual patents or anything else specific.
