Apple loses patent case against Samsung in Japan, injunction request deniedSo while Apple might have claimed a rather substantial victory over Samsung in the US, it looks like in other countries Samsung is doing pretty well. The latest news in the Apple versus Samsung patent war is that Samsung has gained a victory over Apple in Japan as the Japanese courts have ruled that Samsung did not violate Apple’s patents and denied the Cupertino company’s request for an injunction. The patent in question was over the syncing of media files between devices and eight of Samsung’s Galaxy devices were named as the ones infringing upon it. Samsung released a statement after the verdict and they had this to say:

“We welcome the court’s decision, which confirmed our long-held position that our products do not infringe Apple’s intellectual property. We will continue to offer highly innovative products to consumers, and continue our contributions towards the mobile industry’s development.”
