The European Commission, which is investigating Samsung for FRAND abuse, isn’t going to like that

Right after agreeing at the court's, um, insistence to sit down and parlay with Apple about settling, Samsung up and filed a countersuit claiming Apple's iPhone infringes eight Samsung patents including a couple that are supposed to be standards-essential and FRAND-protected.
(The European Commission, which is investigating Samsung for FRAND abuse, ain't gonna like that.)
The Samsung suit, which comes under the jurisdiction of the very same judge that's having them try to settle with Apple, is a response to an Apple suit, filed in February, seeking to get Samsung's Galaxy Nexus phone banned in the United States.
FOSS Patents says, "So far, none of Samsung's infringement claims against Apple has succeeded anywhere on Earth, despite efforts in nine different countries, but Samsung keeps on fighting." The blog also thinks it's not smart to provoke the EC.
