While the Samsung V Apple Case is well documented, some still may question exactly which patents Samsung is being sued for. A new chart provided by Apple outlines just that.
According to the chart (via CNET), Samsung is being sued for three utility patents (‘163, ‘381, and ‘915), four design patents (‘D087, ‘D305, ‘D677, and ‘D889) and four trade dress patents (on the iPhone 3G, 4, iPad and iPad2, and ‘983). Not every device on Samsung’s lineup is being charged for infringing on every patent though; the Exhibit 4G, for example, is only being charged for utilizing three of Apple’s utility patents whereas the far more popular Galaxy S II is being charged on multiple patents outside the utility patents.
This kind of information doesn’t really peg where this case is going, but rather informs the public on the infringed patents. After the release of documents proving that Samsung compared it’s devices to the iPhone, and other public stunts by Samsung, it’s hard to say that this case isn’t going where Apple wants it.
