Apple Inc. (AAPL) sued Samsung Electronics Co. alleging that the electronics maker's Galaxy phones and tablet computers infringe patents and the trademarked look of the iPhone and iPad.
Samsung is infringing patents related to the way the Galaxy devices operate, including the use of hand gestures on the screen, as well as patents on the color and rectangular shape of the iPhone and iPad, Apple said in a complaint filed April 15 in federal court in Oakland, California. The Galaxy phones and tablet, which use Google Inc. (GOOG)'s Android software, were specifically designed to copy Apple products, Apple said,

Apple is seeking injunction on the specified products and punitive damages. Samsung has yet to comment on the suit, according to
