Samsung tries to ban Apple in South Korea

Revenge
Samsung is seeking a complete ban on the sales of the upcoming Apple iPhone 5 in South Korea, in apparent retaliation Job's Mob's patent trolling in Europe, the US and Australia. After the launch of the iPhone 5, Samsung plans to take Apple to court here for its violation of Samsung’s wireless technology-related patents, Samsung said.

It will be impossible for Apple to contest the patent and remain connected to a mobile phone base station. Normally such patents are licenced, but Samsung has had a gutsful of Apple not playing fair in its patent trollage so the idea is to give it a taste of its own medicine. By refusing to licence the technology, Samsung is forcing Apple to accept a ban in a growing market.

So far, Samsung has not been entering into a dogfight with Apple. However, it appears that Jobs' Mob might have crossed a line with some of its legal antics in Europe. That effectively locked the Galaxy Tab out of Germany.

There is also an element of cutting its own nose off to spite its face. The iPhone has shedloads of Samsung technology under the bonnet. The iPhone 5 will have Samsung’s NAND flash memories and application processors.
