Here is another update on the never ending legal battles between Samsung and Apple:
A U.S. court last Friday ordered an injunction blocking the sale of Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Nexus smartphone in the United States, marking the Korean tech king’s second defeat in just one week against Apple.
The court ruled the Galaxy Nexus smartphone “likely” infringes upon all four of the patents Apple included in the preliminary injunction motion it filed in February.
Samsung filed its defense in April in response to the motion.
Apple accuses the Galaxy Nexus of infringing on patents including unified search, or a computerized personal assistant called “Siri” implemented in the iPhone 4S, data tapping, slide to unlock and auto correct features.
“Although Samsung will necessarily be harmed by being forced to withdraw its product from the market before the merits can be determined after a full trial, the harm faced by Apple absent an injunction is greater,” Judge Lucy Koh of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California was quoted by Bloomberg as saying in her ruling. “Apple’s interest in enforcing its patent rights is particularly strong because it has presented a strong case on the merits.” [Joong Ang Ilbo]
