    Default Samsung sues Apple over Notification Center in Korea.



    Reportedly, Samsung has sued Apple over the popular Notification Center in iOS, claiming that it infringes on one of Samsung's active patents. This lawsuit comes as somewhat of a surprise because typically Samsung has used its standards-essential, hardware-related IP to go after Apple, as opposed to this one which is software-related.

    PatentlyApple points to a new report from business-to-business resource BrightWire:

    The Korean online news site iNews24 is reported today that “Samsung Electronics has brought a lawsuit against Apple in a court in South Korea over its ‘Notification Center’ patent infringement.” No other details were made available at this time.

    The delay in launching the lawsuit may have been due to Google’s patent pending notification patents not being officially granted. However, that changed last month when one of their notification patents was indeed granted under the title “Priority inbox notifications and synchronization for mobile-messaging application.” This may have been enough for Samsung to get the lawsuit rolling.
    Not much else is known currently about the suit, although many suspect that Google may have a hand in it. The search giant was just awarded a patent covering Android’s notification center, and it’s been known to help out its partners.

    Back in August, it was reported that Google was quietly lending support to Samsung during its high-profile lawsuit with Apple, offering advice and searching for prior evidence. And it also lent patents to HTC during its feud with the iPad-maker.

    It'll be interesting to watch this develop, because pretty much everyone has heard the claim that Apple borrowed the Notification Center idea from Android. If the suit is passed, Apple may potentially have to do a redesign of iOS, or stop selling iOS devices in Korea completely.

    patents have gotten out of hand, the original purpose was not for simply patenting ideas.

    apple is the worst fir this kinda shit, and samsung is just retaliating using the same method which is stupid.

    Yeah do the court case in South Korea where the judge and jury all have Samsung phones and are patriotic to their own countries. As was the same with the Apple-Samsung court case in America back in August.

    Why not do this somewhere in Europe where neither company originates from.
