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.

Samsung is probably the most corrupt tech company out there, and they
play dirty to varying degrees:
The only thing funnier than your ignorance is you assigning personal attributes to megacorporations, but I expect no less from the idiot who sells his clients inferior AMD parts because "Intel is evil". Hilarious.

While I'm not defending Samsung, just because legislation in the west has legalised payments to politicians and lobby groups does not make those payments any less "corrupt".
The effect is the same, some powerful groups with money get their way with government decisions.
Moreover most family run business have such tales.
As for companies and attributes, all companies are evil, in the sense that they will whatever it takes to make a buck.
But I also think there are degrees of evil, and once in a while you see companies doing things with wanton disregard to good. Apple and these patent games are an example of that.
