According to an article in Dutch-language, Samsung is stepping up its legal response to Apple’s copycat accusations in courts around the world. Poor machine-translated article implies that Samsung is seeking in the Netherlands to ban Apple’s mobile products which sport 3G capabilities, which includes iPhones and 3G iPads. Samsung did not confirm any such lawsuit, but The Hague court confirmed Monday the existence of a lawsuit between Samsung and Apple. The article references a Webwereld story.

Ironically, Apple hit Samsung in the same court last month, managing to secure a ban on imports of Galaxy-branded phones and tablets. It was a strategical attack because Samsung maintains a distribution centre in the country for the entire European Union market. Meanwhile, a court in Germany lifted the EU-wide ban, except in Germany, because Apple doctored court images in order to make the Galaxy Tab 10.1 appear more iPad-like.
