Google (Motorola) forced to accept FRAND patent license to Apple in Germany

by: Chris SmithAugust 28, 2012

In addition to fighting, and beating Samsung in various courts, with the most important victory scored in the U.S. last week, Apple is also involved in other patent-based lawsuits involving other major Android players including HTC and Google (Motorola).

The Apple vs Motorola conflict is all the more important now that Google completed its $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola, as Apple and Google are formally facing each other in various courts in the USA but also other regions such as Germany.

And it’s in Germany that Motorola obtained a few injunctions against Apple, all stayed pending appeals. FOSS Patents explains how injunction [...]

Samsung asking for U.S. Galaxy Tab 10.1 ban to be lifted, might score a minor win against Apple

by: AdrianAugust 28, 2012
The Koreans have been found guilty of infringing on two Apple design patents covering Samsung’s almost full line of smartphones and have been ordered to pay more than $1 billion in damages to the Cupertino-based tech giant. However, when talking about tablets, Sammy might have gotten itself out of trouble for the time being.

Apple and Samsung can still make money together and they will

by: Simon HillAugust 28, 2012
Despite the recent Apple vs Samsung trial, Samsung will still supply many of the parts used in the construction of Apple's iPhone and iPad lines. The patent dispute will take a backseat to mutual profits.

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 28, 2012
Google already submitted their list, although the company continues to insist that "neither it nor its counsel has paid an author, journalist, commentator or blogger to report or comment on any issues in this case."

Samsung releases internal memo in reaction to “worst scenario” verdict in U.S. trial

by: Chris SmithAugust 27, 2012

Samsung has been dealt a major defeat in the U.S., where the jury in the Apple vs Samsung case found the South Korean company to infringe on several software and design patents and awarded Apple just a little over $1 billion in damages.

According to a report from The Korea Times, the verdict was unexpected by Samsung officials, who saw it as “absolutely the worst scenario” for the company:

Samsung executives were still reeling in shock Sunday, but provided no clear hint on the company’s next move in the showdown with its industry archrival. It’s widely expected that Samsung will appeal, but the outlook for success in the [...]

Apple vs Samsung verdict: members of the jury share details about $1 billion ruling

by: Chris SmithAugust 27, 2012

Late on Friday the jury in the U.S. Apple vs Samsung trial revealed its findings in the case, and awarded a huge win to Apple, with the iPhone maker winning on almost on counts. Consequently, the jury said Samsung owes Apple just over $1 billion in damages.

We’ve already seen reactions from both Apple and Samsung, but also from Google, and we’ve seen the immediate effects the verdict had on both companies’ traded stock. We’re probably going to see both companies file various motions and try to overturn certain areas of the verdict in the day to come – yes, even Apple will file such motions as the jury found that the Galaxy Tab tablets don’t [...]

7.5% share slump wipes $12 billion off Samsung’s market value

by: Gary SimsAugust 27, 2012

The markets have reacted swiftly to the landmark judgement granted to Apple against Samsung. In heavy trading (around four times the daily average) Samsung’s shares plummeted by 7.5 percent taking more than $12 billion off the electronic giant’s market value. The market is clearly worried that the $1.05 billion in damages ordered by the Californian jury and the prospect of a complete ban of Samsung’s key mobile products will do irreparable damage to the company.

“There are still too many variables including the final ruling to come at least a month from the recent verdict, and whether there will be a sales ban on [...]

Google’s response to Apple vs. Samsung trial: doesn’t apply to Android

by: Simon HillAugust 27, 2012
So what does Google think of Samsung's court loss against Apple? According to its statement the patent war will go on, the validity of Apple's patents will be challenged, and Android will prevail (reading between the lines a bit on that last one).

Another win for Apple as ITC remands Motorola complaint for further judicial investigation

by: J. Angelo RacomaAugust 26, 2012
While this might initially seem a win for Motorola and Google, the problem here is timing. An initial determination by the judge will still be subject to a review by the ITC. The entire process could take at least one year. With that, whatever damages ensuing from the alleged patent infringement would have already been moot, especially since iPhones and iPads will continue to be sold in the U.S.

Apple vs Samsung verdict: Android devices to ban after Apple $1 billion win in U.S. court

by: Chris SmithAugust 25, 2012

Earlier today we told you that Apple has obtained a huge victory in its U.S. case against Samsung, with the latter being delivered a devastating defeat – not because of the $1 billion in damages awarded to Apple, which can be considered pocket change by Samsung compared to its profits from the mobile business, but because what the victory means for Apple, the whole mobile ecosystem, and, most importantly, consumers.

Sure, Samsung may fight the verdict in further appeals, but Apple will also do some appealing of its own, and try to obtain various injunctions in the U.S. against the Samsung products found to be infringing at least one of [...]
