Apple sues Samsung in Japan, wants sales ban and money

Apple has filed yet another lawsuit against Samsung Electronics - this time with the Tokyo District Court in Japan. The Cupertino-based company wants the suspension of Galaxy S, S II and Galaxy Tab 7.7 sales in Japan as well as 100M Yen - or approximately $1.3M.

According to Reuters, the first hearing was held on Wednesday and concerned patents that the above-mentioned Galaxy devices are supposedly infringing.

As some of you might remember, Samsung was the first to sue Apple in Japan, way back in April - coincidentally the month all of this web of litigation between the two tech juggernauts began. Apple did have some success in the Netherlands, but had less luck elsewhere. The company got a German court to ban the Galaxy Tab 10.1 shipments in Europe, but that decision was later suspended outside of Germany. The latest development was the injunction on the Galaxy Tab 7.7 in Germany.

It just looks like a never-ending spiral of suits and we aren't sure if anyone knows when it's going to end (or how).
