Dutch Court Rules In Favor Of Samsung In 3G Patent Case Against Apple
Do you remember that recent lawsuit that Samsung won against Apple? Now once again, Samsung has won.
A District Court in the Hague, Holland, has ruled that some of Apple’s older iPads (versions one and two) and iPhones (3G, 3Gs, and 4) violate one of the 3G patents, belonging to Korean tech-giant.
The latest ruling regards European Patent EP1188269, which protects “Apparatus for encoding a transport format combination indicator for a communications system.” Dutch website WebWereld.nl reported that accrding to the ruling of the court, the two tech giants try and reach a compensatory deal.
Despite this ruling, Samsung will still have to pay up €800,000 in costs to Apple for the two cases it lost. There is no talk of a sales ban at this time.
