Apple vs Samsung

We have covered the Apple vs Samsung battle for some time now and it seems that it won’t be ending for the foreseeable future.

According to MacWorld, Apple plans to appeal a judge’s order this week that denied its request for a sales ban on the Samsung products that have previously been found to infringe on Apple’s patents. Apple is asking the Court to prevent Samsung from selling several products, including the Galaxy S III smartphone, in the United States.

In May, a jury found that Samsung infringed three of Apple’s patents and awarded the iPhone maker just $119.6 million of the $2 billion that Apple had asked for in damages.


Federal judge Lucy Koh rejected the argument that Apple would be irreparably harmed if Samsung were allowed to continue selling the infringing phones in the U.S. In her ruling, Koh wrote that Apple was not able to show that they would “suffer irreparable damage to its reputation as an innovator.”

On Friday, Apple said it would appeal Koh’s order to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, in Washington, D.C.
