The battle royale goes on – Apple’s point of view to the court to have a preliminary injunction issued in order to block sales of select Samsung Galaxy products in the US has not borne any fruit, which means Cupertino’s position in the ongoing global patent dispute will definitely be shaken to the core. After all, this could very well spark a precedent in other coutries, and in a late Friday ruling, it was made known to the world that Apple’s request for an early US ban was not given the time of the day by District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose.
Apple wanted to stop the sale of the Samsung Droid Charge, Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G and Galaxy Tab 10.1 Stateside, and Koh mentioned that “It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung’s accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed.” My sentiments exactly, as personally (and not a representation of Ubergizmo’s viewpoint), I feel that having more competition amongst different manufacturers will bode well for us, the end consumers. What do you think?
