Apple and Samsung’s business relationship can be said to have been burnt beyond repair, in fact, Samsung recently disclosed that they are just a “manufacturer” in Apple’s eyes, and who knows, Samsung might not even get any more contracts from Apple in the future. Having said that, Apple appealed the ruling of the Tokyo District Court earlier this morning, where the Tokyo District Court dismissed Cupertino’s claim that Samsung actually infringed on its smartphone and tablet computer patents.
Apple did ask for 100 million yen (approximately $1.27 million) in damages, and after the ruling, they have decided to appeal it by taking the case to the Intellectual Property High Court in Tokyo. No idea on just what the final verdict will be, and whether the appeal will be overturned or accepted, but we do know that a long and rocky road known as legal wrangles is up in store ahead for both Samsung and Apple.
