A Tokyo court ruled today in favor of Apple over a patent lawsuit filed by Samsung. In the lawsuit, Samsung claimed that Apple misused specific 3G patents in different versions of the iPhone. Here’s the official statement from Samsung:
“We are disappointed by today’s court decision. Following a thorough review of the ruling, we will take the measures necessary to protect our intellectual property rights.”
Samsung originally filed the patent lawsuit in April of 2011 and was looking to seek an injunction against various versions of the iPhone. While this is an obvious blow to the South Korean company, they have had success against Apple in Japan in the past.
Back in August, they won a lawsuit regarding the infringement of a property relating to the synchronization of music and video data with off-site servers.
