German Mannheim Court Delays Apple’s Slide-to-unlock Lawsuit Against Samsung

Posted on Mar 16 2012 - 11:02am by Editorial Staff

In a “surprising” note that leads both Apple and Samsung to win any decision against the Apple’s slide-to-unlock lawsuit, a German court suspended a trial in which the Cupertino-based company stated that Samsung had copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iOS devices: iPhone and iPad. Apple is also locked in a separate legal battle over the slide-to-unlock patent with Motorola Mobility which the company recently won.

Apple first sued Samsung almost a year ago, claiming that the maker of the Galaxy range of smartphones and tablets “slavishly” copied Apple’s iPhone and iPad models. Both the companies are involved in the number of “legal disputes” across the world, with seven of its latest patents war going on in Germany itself.
