Following Apple’s notice that it plans to seek injunctions against 8 Samsung devices, and no doubt more confident than ever following its decisive legal victory over Samsung last week, the Korean based electronics giant isn’t going to go down without a strong fight.
While Apple had pointed out about 28 devices in its recent trial as being infringing, it chose 8 that address a “portion of the immediate, ongoing irreparable harm that Apple is suffering.” What’s more, many of the accused Samsung devices are no longer available for sale in the United States.
In any event, Samsung issued a one sentence statement to the press yesterday which said, “We will take all necessary measures to ensure the availability of our products in the U.S. market.”
A Samsung spokesman said the company’s options included filing to stop the injunction, appealing if the judge grants it and modifying products.
Samsung officials have already begun to talk to wireless carriers about removing or modifying infringing features to keep products on the market if the injunctions are granted, according to a person familiar with the matter.
The 8 Samsung products Apple is going after include:
- Galaxy S 4G
- Galaxy S2 (AT&T)
- Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket)
- Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)
- Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
- Galaxy S Showcase
- Droid Charge
- Galaxy Prevail
