The patent infringement legal battle between Apple and Seoul based Samsung has escalated to new levels as both of them filed petition to ban import of the each others product. Apple's petition popped up a week after Samsung asked the US authorities to ban import of iPads and iPhones.
The latest fight between these market leaders started on Apr 15 after Apple's petition in California federal court saying that Samsung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets violated patents laws by copying its iPads and iPhones.
Later, Samsung urged the court to ask Apple to show their upcoming iPad 3 and iPhone 5. But Apple retorted saying that Samsung's demand to see the next versions of iPad and iPhone was an "attempt to harass."
