Samsung says it will fight Apple suit with counter-suit

Yesterday word surfaced that Apple was filing a patent suit against Samsung. The suit stems from allegations that Samsung is copying Apple intellectual property with the design of some of the Samsung Galaxy series smartphones. Anyone can see the resemblance between the two in the photo below.

Samsung has vowed to fight Apple's suit with one of its own. According to the AFP, Samsung suspects that Apple is violating its wireless technology patents. This suit is interesting considering that Apple is the second largest customer for Samsung and has spent huge sums of money on components from Samsung.

Apple accused Samsung of copying the look, feel, design, packaging and user interface of the iPhone. Samsung issued a statement reading, "Samsung will respond actively to this legal action taken against us through appropriate legal measures to protect our intellectual property."
