Fresh from its $1 billion court defeat, South Korea's Samsung says Apple is resorting to litigation over market competition in an effort to limit consumer choice.

On Friday, the iPhone maker
said it wanted to add four more Samsung products to the list of patent-infringing goods, including the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note. This brings to 21 the number of Samsung products Apple wants pulled from U.S. stores.
