10/19/2011, For those following the whole patent war drama between Apple and Samsung are probably aware that Apple seems to be catching more breaks than Samsung. They have had successful injunctions against Samsung in various parts of the world, and Samsung’s had their requests for injunctions turned down. However it looks like things may start to look up for Samsung as a US judge has dismissed some of Apple’s patent infringement […]
10/18/2011, Yesterday we reported that HTC was denied their request for an injunction against Apple products in a preliminary hearing. Naturally that did not sit well with the Taiwanese handset manufacturer, and it looks like they will not be giving up and rolling over any time soon. HTC has said that they will be filing an appeal against the ruling handed out by the United States International Trade Commission, which had […]
10/18/2011, One of the main reasons Apple is suing Samsung is because they are claiming that the South Korean company is copying their products, which has resulted in pretty much a patent infringement war that spans several countries. With Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Player devices which is their answer to Apple’s iPod touch media player, a promotional image was spotted that seemed to look rather familiar.
10/17/2011, Apart from Apple vs Samsung, there’s also Apple vs Motorola and Apple vs HTC. If you have been keeping track of the rather vicious patent wars, you’ll probably recall that Google tossed HTC a couple of patents their way in order to help them with their lawsuit against Apple. Following in Samsung’s footsteps, HTC has tried to file for a preliminary injunction against Apple, but as it turns out, much […]
10/14/2011, In the whole Apple vs Samsung saga, Apple has been basing their arguments of patent infringement largely upon the design and look of Samsung’s products, claiming that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet resembles their iPad. Samsung on the other hand is using hardware as their argument, claiming that Apple was infringing upon wireless technology patents used in their iPhones and 3G iPads. However while Apple has been seeing success […]
10/11/2011, While the Nexus Prime may have accidentally been outed as “coming soon”, many were wondering what the original reason behind the delay was to begin with. According to Samsung, the reason why the event has been pushed back is due to the company deciding to express their tribute to the passing of Steve Jobs, which sounds about right and a rather respectable move, especially considering that both Apple and Samsung […]
10/10/2011, The Amazon Kindle Fire was announced a few weeks back, and with a launch scheduled for the 15th of November, it looks like the tablet is under fire for allegedly infringing upon patents belonging to Smartphone Technologies whose parent company is Acacia Research. If the company Smartphone Technologies sounds familiar, it is because they have gone after Apple and RIM in the past, similarly claiming patent infringement, and it looks […]
10/10/2011, One of the interesting features of Apple’s new iPhone 4S is its antenna system, which apparently is intelligent enough to switch between multiple antennas, and while that might seem like a groundbreaking feature to the layman, its a feature that has apparently been around for quite a while and more importantly, its patents belong to none other than… Samsung.
10/07/2011, Here we go again with yet another patent infringement lawsuit, and this time Motorola seems to be the target. Patent licensing company, Intellectual Ventures, has filed a lawsuit against Motorola, claiming that the company had infringed upon six of their patents.
10/05/2011, It looks like Samsung is keeping true to their word, and less than 24 hours after the iPhone 4S has been announced, Samsung has already filed a preliminary injunction against the device in both France and Italy, citing the same reasons that they had in the past on how Apple had infringed upon their patents.
10/04/2011, About a week ago, Samsung came forward and offered Apple a deal that would allow them to continue selling their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets in Australia. Given that Christmas is only a couple of months away, obviously Samsung wanted their products to be available in time for the festive shopping season, but it looks like Apple has decided to decline their offer.
09/30/2011, The patent war between Apple and Samsung seems to be ongoing with no end in sight, or so it seemed until Samsung decided to step forward and offer Apple a deal which would allow them to sell their Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in Australia in time for the holidays.
09/26/2011, A few days ago we reported that Samsung was reported to have requested for a ban of the iPhone and 3G iPad in the Netherlands, claiming that Apple had infringed upon their patents which included a form of wireless technology used for 3G communications, which explains why the WiFi-only iPad was left untouched. In our report we stated that Apple had scheduled a meeting with Samsung on Monday in order […]
09/23/2011, We had only just reported that Samsung had plans to take a more aggressive approach to the ongoing legal battles with Apple, and true to their word Samsung has recently launched an offensive against Apple in the Netherlands where they are seeking the ban of Apple’s smartphones and tablets.
