Our two favorite legal teams from Samsung and Apple have both been given the green light on adding more products to their newest patent lawsuit. This is the lawsuit that includes the iPhone 5′s LTE and Apple’s addition of the Galaxy Note 10.1, US Galaxy S III, and Jelly Bean, in case you lost track.
Apple has WON BIG in the Apple/Samsung IP lawsuit. The judge basically gave everything Apple wanted. Samsung was found to be infringing several of Apple's patents and designs. In addition, Samsung now has to pay Apple over $1 Billion. Samsung lost completely. Apple was found to be infringing ZERO ZERO ZERO patents of Samsung which is quite surprising.
You may have thought things were over for Samsung after last week’s loss to Apple in the highly-covered patent lawsuit between the two. Surely the $1.0+ billion judgment and ensuing stock losses for Samsung are enough to drive them out of the smartphone and tablet markets. For all the hype, last week’s jury verdict in favor of Apple was just one battle in a war. Even Apple recognizes this.
Samsung’s plans to launch a version of its 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab in Australia have been railroaded by Apple, who has extended its lawsuit to stop Samsung from launching anything until the lawsuit is settled and/or the courts grant approval.
On Friday, Apple expanded a patent infringement lawsuit against Samsung, including the Galaxy Note, the Galaxy S III, and the Galaxy note 10.1 tablet to a list of other devices it sought an injunction against on Monday.
As the lawsuits between Apple and Samsung continue to slowly wind down, Samsung has prevailed in avoiding an injunction that Apple was asking for in the latest episode. Earlier this year Apple prevailed in a patent lawsuit to the tune of $120 million.
An appeals court in the U.K. has issued a ruling in one of the many Apple v. Samsung cases from around the world. This particular appeal involved a case where Apple had alleged Samsung copied the design of the iPad with their Samsung Galaxy Tab device. Apple had originally lost the lawsuit after a U.K. judge found the Samsung designs were not as simplistic as Apple’s.
Would you be surprised if I said Apple is trying to sue Samsung over their Galaxy Note 10.1? No? Didn’t think so. Apple told a judge in California that Samsung infringes patents on the Samsung Note 10.1, and even wanted to add Android 4.1 into that lawsuit.
I was just wondering if anyone knows the exact details of how this lawsuit could de-rail the galaxy s3. Is it a possibility that they recall it? Will the jellybean update due in the fall be delayed due to copyright violations?
