SEOUL, South Korea (TheStreet) -- Samsung Electronics filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission that seeks to ban Apple's (AAPL) importation and sale of iPhone, iPad and iPod devices in the U.S.
Samsung said in a statement that Apple infringes on five of the South Korean electronics company's patents.
Samsung said it is seeking a "permanent exclusion order prohibiting entry to the United States of all Apple products in violation of these patents."
Apple assembles many of its products outside the United States.Samsung's complaint ratchets up the fight between the two technology giants. Just last week, Apple filed a lawsuit in South Korea against Samsung alleging Samsung has infringed patents on smartphones and tablet computers. Apple also sued Samsung in the U.S. in April alleging Samsung's Galaxy-branded cellphones and tablets copy the iPhone and iPad. Samsung fired back, suing Apple in South Korea, the U.S. and elsewhere for alleged patent rights violations. -- Written by Joseph Woelfel
