Samsung Loses Court Battle In France, Ends Up Paying For Apple
Samsung seems to love the smell of the courtrooms but it looks like they are now out of one of them for now. A French panel called Samsung’s attempt to ban iPhone 4S sales “disproportionate” and ordered the South Korean company to pay 100,000 euros of Apple’s legal bills.
This ruling ends Samsung’s Oct. 5th lawsuit against Apple. The lawsuit claimed that Apple infringed on two patents covering WCDMA used for 3G. Although this isn’t the first time that Samsung has lost a legal battle, a recent Italian judge rejected an injunction against Apple, Samsung has won in the down under. Samsung won a battle in Australia which allowed for the lifting of a temporary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
