    Samsung Dealt 3 Blows in Apple Case: Banned in Australia, Looks Bad in U.S. & More


    Things are looking pretty grim for Samsung in their ongoing legal trouble with Apple. They were recently dealt three serious legal blows in cases around the world.

    First, the Judge in the Australia case ruled that Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 was infringing on Apple patents and banned all sales of the device in Australia. Here's a quote from the Sydney Morning Herald with Samsung's response to the defeat,
    In a statement, Samsung Electronics said it was disappointed with the ruling and would be seeking legal advice on its options.

    "Samsung will continue its legal proceeding against Apple's claim in order to ensure our innovative products remain available to consumers," it said.

    "This is a part of our ongoing legal proceeding against Apple's claim. Samsung is also confident it can prove Apple's violation of Samsung's wireless technology patents through a cross-claim filed on September 16, 2011 with the Federal Court of Australia, New South Wales.

    "Our wireless standard patents are essential for mobile business. We will continue to legally assert our intellectual property rights against those who violate Samsung's patents and free ride on our technology."

    Second, the last part of Samsung's statement segues into their next defeat. A dutch court just turned down Samsung's counter-suit to ban sales of certain Apple products (although it did reject Apple's counter-counter-claims). Here's a quote from the Engadget article,
    According to Reuters, a Dutch court has turned down Samsung's request for a ban on certain Apple products, and rejected claims that they infringe on Samsung's patents (it also rejected Apple's counterclaims in the case). The particular patents in question here are not related to software or the design of the devices, as in other cases, but rather their 3G capabilities, which Samsung had claimed Apple was infringing on with the various iterations of the iPhone and iPad.
    Third, it looks like things are actually starting to turn bad for Samsung here in the United States too. United States District Judge Judy Koh, ruled just yesterday that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 does infringe upon some of Apple's patents. Furthermore, she took it a step further with a demonstration of the similarity of the devices. Here's a quote from the BGR article describing the demonstration,
    The preliminary hearing took an interesting turn, Reuters reports, when judge Koh held both tablets above her head and asked Samsung attorney Kathleen Sullivan if she was able to distinguish one from the other. “Not at this distance,” Sullivan replied, reinforcing Apple’s claim that Samsung’s tablet is a “copycat” device. Another Samsung attorney was able to distinguish Samsung’s tablet from the iPad.
    Interestingly, the only bright spot was that Judge Koh chose not to order an injunction blocking sales of the tablet in the States. She indicated that Apple must first establish the validity of the patents in question.

    What do you guys think of these reports? It seems like dire news indeed for Samsung. It appears that Apple's attempt to hinder sales of the Samsung device this holiday season could prove successful, and that may have been their primary intent all along.

    This really, really pisses me off. I have no polite words for how I feel about Crapple as a company. Their hypocrisy is simply mind-blowing. Go ahead and use components in your devices that are manufactured by Samsung, then turn around and sue them in multiple countries. Nice.

    I'm thinking right about now, I go build a skateboard since it has for wheels and start suing car company's because there vehicles also have four wheels. I'm pretty sure if I went to all the same courts that these cases are being handled. I could win, with such a bogus claim.

    That's not hypocritical Samsung gets paid for those parts. stealing intellectual property isn't part of the deal. if the court sees that Samsung has then Samsung is wrong. don't let your inane hatred for apple cloud rational judgement

    So by your logic doing business with someone who allegedly stole from you is not hypocritical?

    Rational judgment would tell you not to bite the hand that feeds you. Inane hatred? I think not.

    P.S. If this turns into a flame war, the thread's getting closed. Just sayin'.

    Have you seen previews of iOS 5? It's...well...Android. Many features taken directly from Android. Whether or not there is copyright infringement has yet to be seen, but any lack of copyright on Google's part doesn't make this action any less hypocritical.

    Just tapped that..

    No there are slight similarities but it is not android also its not just about the software with these two a lot of Samsung hardwAre is almost identical. listen I have a sgs2 and love it but if it comes out that Samsung did this they have to change stuff. besides why do you care so much these are two giant companies that in the end are playing little games
