(NEW YORK) – The patent war between Samsung and Apple continues to escalate, as the South Korean technology manufacturer is accusing Apple of copyright infringement.
According to Bloomberg, Samsung added a complaint to an already standing lawsuit between the two companies, claiming that Apple infringed on seven different Samsung patents in creating the iPhone 5.
The suit, which could shift the balance of power in the $219 billion market, is scheduled for 2014.
Apple won a $1.05 billion settlement from Samsung, the world’s largest mobile phone seller, in a different patent case back in August. However, the Cupertino, California company recently lost a legal battle when a U.S. District Court judge rescinded a U.S. ban on Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1.
