Really? Apple was one started all the patent lawsuits seeking sales bans everywhere so why is Samsung being the one with charges against them? God damn EU is in Apples back pocket or what?

Cyke1; Your comment assumes that Apple is the ‘bad guy’ in the equation. It assumes that whomever files a lawsuit first must be in the wrong.

Samsung hasn’t been ‘in the right’ either. They’ve asked for excessive licensing fees for technology essential to the operation of all cell phones before the lawsuits were filed, in violation of agreements that such technology would be made available fairly to all manufacturers.
