Apple Goes After Six More Samsung Products

No holiday respite in this patent war


Apple hopes to take more prisoners in its patent war against arch rival Samsung, asking a judge to add six of the Korean company's flagship phones and tablets to the list of gadgets infringing upon its patents.

Apple contends it has "good cause" to add the Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi, Rugby Pro and Galaxy III Mini to its lawsuit against Samsung.

"Apple has acted quickly and diligently to determine that these newly-released products do infringe many of the same claims already asserted by Apple, and in the same way that the already-accused devices infringe," Apple claimed in the filing. It adds that granting the motion would "promote judicial economy and efficiency."
