iPhone 5 release bans planned by Samsung?

Following the Apple iPhone 5 release date new reports have suggested Samsung is to attempt to stop sales of the Samsung Galaxy S II challenger as legal disputes continue between the two companies

As the ongoing legal battle between Apple and Samsung continues to escalate, new reports have suggested Samsung plans to file an injunction preventing the sale of the Apple iPhone 5 in Korea.
 
Whilst Samsung has been forced to reveal designs and prototype models of its upcoming handsets and tablets to Apple in recent months, its attempts of getting a sneak peak at the much mooted iPhone 5 have been refused by the courts.
 
Now, however, the Korea Times has reported that a Samsung executive has revealed the Galaxy S II manufacturer is to attempt to ban the iPhone 5 from sale in its native Korea following the eagerly awaited iPhone 5 release date.
 
“Just after the arrival of the iPhone 5 here, Samsung plans to take Apple to court here for its violation of Samsung’s wireless technology patents,” the unnamed Samsung executive reportedly announced.
 
“For as long as Apple does not drop mobile telecommunications functions, it would be impossible for it to sell its i-branded products without using our patents,” the executive added. “We will stick to a strong stance against Apple during the lingering legal fights.”
