Tech Battle Redux: Apple, Samsung Head Back To Court

SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — The fiercest rivalry in the world of smartphones is heading back to court this week in Silicon Valley, with Apple and Samsung accusing each other, once again, of ripping off designs and features.

The trial starting Monday will mark the latest round in a long-running series of lawsuits between the tech giants.

The latest Apple-Samsung case will be tried less than two years after a federal jury found Samsung was infringing on Apple patents. Samsung was ordered to pay about $900 million but is appealing and has been allowed to continue selling products using the technology.

In the upcoming case, Apple Inc. is accusing Samsung of infringing on five patents on newer devices, including Galaxy smartphones and tablets. In a counterclaim, Samsung says Apple stole two of its ideas to use on iPhones and iPads.
