Samsung still has to pay the piper, but when?

It looks as if at least 8 devices have been put on the banned list courtesy of Apple. On Dec 6th, the ongoing saga between Samsung and Apple should come to a close. This gives time for Samsung to catch their breath and draw up a new game plan. In doing that, it also delays the effects of Apple’s stupendous legal victory.

 There has been a legal hearing about the preliminary injunctions. However, details have not yet been revealed whether these will be heard at the upcoming September 20th hearing or the aforementioned December hearing. Either way, it looks as if Judge Koh, who presided over the case, wants to effectively streamline the post-motions being put forth.

Samsung during all of this is trying to (and sources say that have been successful) to nullify the sales ban on the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Apple, in response, had nothing to say on the matter about this development or about the case at large. For a company that was just awarded $1.05B in damages, you’d think they’d be doing the Macarena while waving their limited edition mini iPads.

All of this has had a dramatic effect on both company’s’ market shares. Samsung has been fighting a tailspin since the verdict was handed out last week; they were able to stem the bleeding and bring the price back up to just under 4.6 percent their pre-verdict share price.

    You should point out the ban is US only. There are other countries you know.

    “….bring the price back up to just under 4.6 percent their pre-verdict share price.”

    That makes it sound like 95.4% of the price was wiped off! Just under 4.6% less than the pre-verdict price maybe?

    Good insight you have here. Got so many ideas from the case of Samsung and Apple lawsuit. I just wish that the ban of one of the products of Samsung Tab will be down. Things happens that 2 products have similarities. It is like “Mapping measures the many variables – both internal and external – that shape a company’s environment. And it measures the effects of decisions over time. The impact of many decisions is not immediately felt, and by the time the full impact materializes it may be too late.” I just want to share this with you from Raz Silberman http://rsilberman.com/?p=402

    Pretty clear this judge is an I-idiot with no intention of overturning the verdict. Samsung doesn’t have a case.

    I’d love to see Samsung announce that the 8 devices will be going end of life in the US at the end of SeptemberOctober and slice 50% off of the prices, side stepping the ban and increasing customer base while they’re at it…
