SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA (AP) - A top Samsung Electronics Co. executive says her company will take a more aggressive stance against its smartphone and tablet rival Apple Inc. in a global patent dispute.

Samsung’s head of global marketing for mobile communications Lee Younghee said that Apple has been “freeriding” on the South Korean company’s patented wireless communications technologies.

“We’ll be pursuing our rights for this in a more aggressive way from now on,” she said in an interview.

Apple sued Samsung in April in the United States, alleging the product design, user interface and packaging of Samsung’s Galaxy devices “slavishly copy” the iPhone and iPad. Samsung has responded with its own lawsuits.

Apple spokesman Steve Park in Seoul declined to comment.
