Legal Battle between Apple and Samsung is getting little bit interesting. In a copyright infringement trial in California recently, it seems as if Apple has a much stronger position than many people might believe.
Recently, Apple and Samsung were asked by court to reduce the number of patent claims against each other. Now Apple has planned, which lawsuits to drop.
Apple’s attempt to temporarily ban U.S. sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 is one step closer to fruition. The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit denied a request from Samsung to rehear the case.
Apple had gone to court, aiming to win a ban on the sales of Samsung Galaxy S III in US. However, disappointment followed Apple to court.
The legal disputes between Apple and Samsung did not have much impact on their business relations. They did some business together. However, two of the most prominent giants in their respective industry may be on a path to an improved and more cordial coexistence.
Recently, Apple filed a motion to block US sales of Samsung’s new Galaxy S III smartphone. Apple claimed that the handset had been included as part of another ongoing preliminary injunction case against the Galaxy Nexus.
Once again, Apple is facing hurdles in its attempt to win sales bans in a patent-related litigation with Samsung and Motorola.
Samsung and Apple are back with their habit of fighting against each other in courts. Samsung has requested for a preliminary injunction against its Galaxy Tab with the argument that the 4G capability if its tablet means it does not directly compete with Apple’s 3G equipped iPad 2.
Last week, CEOs from Apple and Samsung met for court-ordered mediation talks. The talks did not yield any positive result.
Courts ordered Apple and Samsung to hold talks and reduce the number of lawsuits the two tech giants had filed against each other. The CEOs of two companies also met.
