Samsung seeks US import ban against Apple products
SEOUL, South Korea - June 30, 2011 (WPVI) -- Samsung is asking the United States to prohibit Apple from importing key products including the latest iPhone and iPad devices amid an escalating patent dispute.
Samsung said in a statement Thursday that it filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission over what it claims are Apple's violation of five patents held by Samsung. Many of Apple's products are assembled outside the U.S.
Samsung said it is seeking a "permanent exclusion order prohibiting entry to the United States of all Apple products in violation of these patents."
Apple Inc. spokesman Steve Park in Seoul declined comment.
Apple sued Samsung in the U.S. in April alleging patent violations and Samsung has responded with its own lawsuits against Apple.
