The legal fight between Samsung and Apple doesn't seem to be getting better right now. It all began when Apple took Samsung to court over some of their handsets and UIs being too similar to Apple products. First, Apple requested to see Samsung's upcoming devices. After that, Samsung swung back, requesting to see Apple's devices. Samsung shrugged things off, and hinted that things may escalate. Then, just a few days ago, Apple game back saying that Samsung was harassing them by asking to see their upcoming devices, such as the iPhone 5 and the iPad 3. Strong words, indeed.

Now, we hear that Apple is amending the complaint, and the accusations are being "phrased more strongly and in more detail," according to Florian Mueller of FOSS patents, who says the following:

"Many of the changes are designed to portray Samsung's alleged infringement as an incredibly outrageous act of copying. The original complaint already accused Samsung of "slavishly copying" Apple's designs. The amended one stresses that Samsung "has been even bolder" than other competitors emulating Apple's products and has created "products that blatantly imitate the appearance of Apple's products to capitalize on Apple's success.""

Oh, tech biz, how you like to keep us watching in anticipation and excitement at what happens next.
