If Apple and Samsung eventually intend to reach some kind of settlement over patent and trademark disputes, as Apple did with Nokia, they are taking a particularly messy course to arrive there.
Samsung fired the latest salvo in the ongoing dispute between the two companies, with a complaint filed at the International Trade Commission. If successful, it could lead to an important ban on iPhone, iPad and iPod products. The filing is the first at the ITC, although both have lodged suits in U.S. district courts as well as in international courts.
