Apple posted a $2.6 million bond

Apple posted a $2.6 million bond

On Tuesday, Judge Lucy Koh granted Apple's request for an injunction against sales of the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1. Koh had the case sent back to her from the appeals court and ruled in Apple's favor. On Wednesday, things happened again with rapid fire speed. First, as the judge had requested, Apple posted a $2.6 million bond to cover any damages to Samsung that Apple could be responsible for if the injunction does not hold up. Secondly, Samsung moved for a stay of the injunction pending the hearing of its appeal. Finally, both sides tried to get expert testimony presented by the other side excluded. Apple was able to get a large number of expert papers thrown out including one written by a Samsung expert that claims that Apple infringed on the '516 patent.

Samsung argues that it is likely to prevail on appeal because the court "erred by issuing a preliminary injunction based on a stale and incomplete record" and the injunction "is improper based on the current evidence". The Korean based firm mentioned the harm that the public would suffer from the injunction and that Samsung's relationships with carriers would be harmed.

We're not sure that we totally agree with Samsung on the suffering of the public if the injunction is finalized. After all, we can't see too many hearts breaking over the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 when the sequel is already out.

I`m glad you are content with the banning of a obsolete product.

You're a retard. Samsung asked the Judge in the case for a stay during appeal, a normal procedure in a lawsuit.

Justice served. Perhaps Samsung could finally learn a lesson here on not to infringe on patents.

You obviously didn't read the article. Or you just suck at life. Because in no way was Samsung begging Apple for mercy. They were asking the judge to hold her decision so they could present counter evidence. Plus, who even cares if the tablet gets dumped? It's old anyway.

this so called "major" victory for apple is just a "minor" defeat for samsung, and it looks like the judge wanted to stop apple's whining by granting a ban on just one product in one country while samsung has many galaxy products sold in many different countries including the 10.1's successor. this injunction is of course a delaying tactic making sure orders for the 10.1 are shipped to its US owners before it totally gets banned.. samsung lawyers seem to be prepared for this war, coz its money for samsung hehe

Apple and Samsung's Patent Wars will be wasted billions of dollars for nothing. Judge Koh should said "no more Patent Wars in my court room".

She has been a fair judge to date. I liked the fact she got both sides to talk and settle things outside of court.

Which part was settled out of court? If they'd settled on something there would be no bond and no injunction, nor appeal.

Meanwhile, Samsung will be releasing quad core Galaxy Tabs in a few months time.

I don't understand why this was even important. Apple is so retarded it's funny. I've lost all respect for that company. Too many people are blindly in love with it, and they don't make the quality of products they used to cuz they're not innovating lately. And they act like they rule the world and just try to make the competition go away via lawsuits.

It's because Apple is always playing catch up to yesterdays technology. Anything they get praised for innovation wise has always been somebody else's work that they've paid for. Or not paid for... *bah-dum tiss*

In many ways that's true. But let's give some credit wear credit is due. They did basically kick start the modern smartphone market, but ever since then, they've been slacking. In terms of hardware, they got it right with the iPhone 4, but the 4S is a joke to me, such little innovation there. But there has been practically no overhauling improvements in the software since it came out. Other than putting a few pixels more between app icons to make them centered (steve jobs). . . At this point, yes, Apple is behind the competition, and they are trying to get ahead by suing it.

How funny would it be if the injunction got lifted, and Samsung said they were going to put Apple's $2.4 million into development of the SGS4.
