Samsung brings another eight patents to the Apple knife-fight


The Mamas and the Papas used to dream about it, but California's been turned from sunny idyll into blood-spattered battleground as the global conflict 'twixt Samsung and Apple continues. Samsung's pulled out a further eight patents to rebuke Apple's Northern District court injunction that's got designs on banishing the Galaxy Nexus from our shores. Two of the patents are licensed under FRAND terms, muddying the waters even further over the contentious subject of common patent sharing. Meanwhile, both company CEOs are being made to engage in sit-down talks with the hope that Judge Lucy Koh won't make them share a dorm room at summer camp.
