Apple Loses To Samsung In Device Infringement Case

Comments Off on Apple Loses To Samsung In Device Infringement Case 7

In one of the major upsets in the patent war for the iPhone maker, a US judge on Thursday refused Apple Inc’s move to ban Samsung smartphones and tablets in the United States.

However, Lucy Koh, a US district judge, who oversaw the patent trial, finalised the damage award of USD 929 million to be paid by the South Korean electronics giant to Apple.

A year ago, a jury had awarded over USD 1 billion for patent infringement. However, the judge ordered a retrial of the case and the final award amount was fixed at USD 929 million.

In a court order, a judge is reported to have denied Apple’s request to ban 23 Samsung devices stating that there were no evidence that infringement elements were driving the consumer demand. Original Post at Telecom Tiger.
