Court sides with Samsung in dispute with Apple

Source: Associated Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has sided with Samsung Electronics Corp. in one aspect of its ongoing patent dispute with Apple Inc.

The Washington, D.C.-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit on Thursday overturned a judge's order blocking Samsung from selling its Galaxy Nexus smart phone pending a patent lawsuit by Apple.
....

In its Thursday ruling, the appeals court said Apple had failed to show that any of the patent violations it accused Samsung of in regards to the Galaxy would immediately and irreparably hurt its own smart phone sales. It said Judge Lucy Koh had abused her discretion in granting Apple a preliminary injunction earlier this year.

The decision allowed Samsung to continue selling the Galaxy Nexus.

3. well, probably not...

In the mean time, who is Apple going to pay for the technology it took directly from open source on which it's operating systems and most of it's applications are based? Is it going to pay for Braun's obsolete styles from which Apple's modern look comes from? The list goes on.

The argument can go either way. It's all just funding for lawyers with an added side show for free advertising. It's about the same as Trump trying to copyright the phrase, "you're fired". It's a waste of time, energy, economic growth and technological advancement.

Just rich kids fighting in a sandbox.
