Apple denied request to permanently ban 26 Samsung devices

In case you haven’t noticed, there’s a little bad blood between Apple and Samsung. On this episode of ‘As the Smartphone World Turns,’ Apple attempts to permanently ban the sale of 26 Samsung devices in the U.S. However, a judge denied this latest attempt of Apple to derail Samsung.

Judge Lucy Koh, who has presided over the entire trial, ruled that any infringing features on Samsung’s devices are just part of a larger feature set, and wouldn’t fit into the broad ban that Apple was seeking. She added that it ‘wouldn’t be equitable’ to deprive Samsung consumers of the infringing devices when only ‘limited features’ have been infringed upon.

It would also seem that Samsung has already been punished for the infringements and that Apple is just finding ways to keep their lawyers busy these days. I’m no lawyer, but it may have been helpful to request the ban back in August. When will it stop, Apple?

    People already know Apple is a joke in the game of technology. Yeah back in the early days of 2008/2009 many would say Samsung copied apple products. But today as we stand 14 days till 2013 Samsung has BLOWN THE DOORS off apple with it’s innovation and out right better products. Today’s Samsung products are so much better than apple it’s pretty comical.
