Just a short update to my last post. No surprise here. In fact, Samsung’s Korea IP team could benefit from a consultancy. I can help bridge some gaps.
SEOUL, July 4 (Yonhap) — Samsung Electronics Co. has suffered another setback in its patent war with Apple Inc. as a U.S. court rejected Samsung’s request to lift a sales ban on its Galaxy Nexus phones in America, industry sources said Wednesday.
The U.S. District Court of Northern California on Tuesday turned down Samsung’s request to delay a preliminary injunction against sales of its Galaxy Nexus phones in the U.S. market while it pursues an appeal.
The district court issued the injunction on June 29, accepting Apple’s claim that the Galaxy Nexus phone violated its unified search technology. The ruling becomes effective upon the iPhone maker’s payment of a US$95.6 million bond, which will be used to compensate Samsung if the sales ban is reversed.
