The European Commission has confirmed it is investigating Samsung over its global lawsuits against Apple for the infringement of industry-standard 3G patents in the iPhone 4S.

The European regulator is looking into whether Samsung is acting against EU competition laws in suing Apple over UMTS 3G patents it holds that are standard for 3G devices across the globe, the commission confirmed to ZDNet Australia late on Friday.

"The Commission has indeed sent requests for information to Apple and Samsung concerning the enforcement of standards-essential patents in the mobile telephony sector," the commission said.
