Apple Asks Appeals Court to Halt Samsung Tablet, Phone Sales

Apple Inc., maker of the iPhone and iPad, asked a U.S. appeals court to block sales of some products made by Samsung Electronics Co. that it contends “slavishly copy” the two devices.

“Apple is widely regarded as an innovator of beautiful designs,” Apple lawyer Michael Jacobs of Morrison & Foerster told a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington today. “What we’re asking Samsung to do is stop copying. There are other beautiful designs out there.”
