Samsung seeks bans on the iPhone 4S

Korean giant gunning for Jesus-mobe in latest battle of patent war

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Samsung is making good on its promise to block the iPhone 5, even though it's now an iPhone 4S, announcing on its blog that it will be filing for preliminary injunctions in Paris and Milan against the new Jesus-mobe iteration today.

The Korean electronics giant is citing two patent infringements related to the WCDMA standard for 3G mobile handsets in its new cases.

Samsung, which is locked in a fight-to-the-injunction struggle with Apple in numerous countries worldwide, said the fruity firm's violation of its intellectual property was "too severe" and "iPhone 4S should be barred from sales".

"Apple has continued to flagrantly violate our intellectual property rights and free ride on our technology. We believe it is now necessary to take legal action to protect our innovation," the Samsung Tomorrow blog read.

The Galaxy maker added that it was planning to file preliminary injunctions in other countries "after further review".

Apple is looking for injunctions on Samsung's Galaxy line-up of smartphones and fondleslabs in a number of countries, and has already succeeded in Germany and the Netherlands. It claims that the Galaxy devices are "slavish" copies of its iPhones and iPads. Samsung has been busily counter-suing, insisting Apple is "free-riding" on its patents.

A ruling on Apple's requested preliminary injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia is expected sometime this week, after Samsung's attempted settlement was knocked back. ®
