Just In | Apple VS Samsung : Patent War [Infographic]

The biggest legal battle between the two giants of the technology industry - APPLE & SAMSUNG - is still on! In this long and hard fought battle between these 2 rivals, where Apple had filed for patent infringement, claiming that Samsung has copied its iPhone and iPad designs asking for a ban on Samsung's products, a final result on who copied whom is still awaited.

Patent is a form of intellectual property. It consists of a set of exclusive rights granted by a sovereign state to an inventor or their assignee for a limited period of time in exchange for the public disclosure of an invention.

Apple has accused Samsung of slavishly copying its iPhone and iPad designs and is trying to stop Samsung from selling Galaxy phones and tablets as the sales of Samsung's products has directly affected the sales of Apple products. Following this, Apple had filed for patent infringement on Samsung in courts worldwide, seeking ban on Samsung products in some countries and is still striving hard to get them banned in others.

While this patent war has resulted in a ban on Samsung's products in Germany and Netherlands, Apple too had too give up its source code of iPhone 4S which exploited its technology which was kept under the wraps till now.
