    After successfully obtaining an injunction in the U.S. against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, Apple managed to achieve the same for the Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Samsung, as expected, appealed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 ruling and is now doing the same in case of the latest Google phone. A motion to stay the injunction was filed for the entire duration of the appeal; it includes seven points, among which, Samsung's assessment that "The Court's finding that Apple will suffer irreparable harm was based on legally insufficient evidence that Samsung and Apple are competitors", and "'People' and ...

    Yesterday, Apple has been granted an injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S., granted, that Cupertino has to post a $2.6 million bond protecting Samsung from losses in case the ruling turns out to be wrong; only then will the injection become effective. Make no mistake, Apple already posted the bond like a champ, according to reports. Samsung, on its end, filed a motion to stay the injunction pending its appeal with the Federal Circuit and asked for an expedited hearing by Friday. Apple, according to reports, agreed to the expedite request, but asked for Monday as a ...

    Apple filed a motion for preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the U.S. on May 19, having Cupertino's design patent at its core. Fast forward to the present and Apple managed to successfully block the sales of the Samsung tablet in the U.S., just a couple of hours before Google I/O kicks off. Well known by now U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has initially denied Apple's motion but an appeal's court considered it was time to review the order. The Judge said that "although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the ...

    Magistrate Judge Joseph C. Spero was appointed to oversee settlement talks between Apple and Samsung -- ordered by Judge Lucy Koh from the United States District Court for the Northern District of California -- over the course of two days on Monday and Tuesday, May 21 and 22. This might come as no surprise to you but the two giants have not reached an agreement, according to reports. Samsung's CEO Choi Gee-sung and Head of the firm’s Mobile Division, Shin Jong-kyun, were present at the meeting on behalf of the South Korean manufacturer and Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, represented the ...

    This is probably not the best way to sit down at the table, start negotiations, and try to settle -- as the court ordered Apple and Samsung for May 21 and 22; the Cupertino company has filed for an immediate U.S. preliminary injunction against Samsung and its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, having a court order at its base recognizing Apple's design patent (in appeal). Samsung had to slightly redesign the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Germany -- because of Apple's design patent infringement claim -- where you can find the Galaxy Tab 10.1N (with the speakers being placed on the bezel to the left and right of ...

    The HTC EVO 4G LTE should have been on shelves today, May 18, but thanks to an ITC ruling banning imports of HTC devices as of April 19 there are some delays thanks to U.S. Customs who are taking their job (and the ruling) seriously (as one would expect). There was a ray of light however which might have gotten your hopes up yesterday: Best Buy sent out a letter letting people know that the HTC EVO 4G LTE should be available as of May 23. Today Best Buy is taking your hopes and scatters them away. According to a new letter being sent out, the previous one contained incorrect information ...

    Just like there's a lot of suing going on lately, there's also a lot of settling (mediation) as a result of court orders (which is probably the wisest choice in many cases). Apple and Samsung have been ordered to settle their differences (patents) over two days next week on May 21 and 22 and now Apple has been ordered to attend a settlement meeting with HTC. The Delaware court ordered the two companies to meet up in Delaware on August 28, 2012 in order to discuss the possibility of a settlement. Just as in the Samsung case, there will be a third (non-involved) party mediating and ...
