Judge sets September 20th date for hearing on preliminary injunctions; Apple is grateful

0. phoneArena 24 Aug 2012, 22:33 posted on

While the verdict has been spelled out in terms of dollars and cents, there still is the matter of Apple's request for injunctions on certain Samsung phones; Apple has until the 29th to file a motion, Samsung has 14 days to respond followed by 2 more days for Apple to once again reply...

It is not really justice but protectionism

apple's attitude is to steal from others but when others starts to steal from them, they would get mad and sue everyone.

It's on apple's history. They steal some ideas and when someone took a hint from those ideas, they would get mad.

I would love to see when Apple loses a patent lawsuit for the company to come out and say 'The company says it values innovation and originality and applauds the court for sendng the message that stealing isn't right' in their disclosure.. or even use the same exact paragraph just change the company.. and put an obligatory wink ;)

You won't have a choice soon enough. The only phone you could probably get is an iPhone in the near future.

Windows phones, used phones, imported international versions, plus the ones that were found to NOT be infringing (GS3)

Out of curiosity, what moved you away from the new iPhone and toward BB10? I am truly curious. You seemed so full of anticipation toward the new iPhone in some of your posts.

Are you stupid or something? This isn't Apple vs. Android. It's Apple vs. Samsung. It doesn't really affect the Android OS at all. This lawsuit is how the Samsung Android interface looks similar to that of iOS.

This is not about copying or stealing. This is all about American way of delivering justice ... they believe in killing outsiders w/o reason (remember the dialog in Rush Hour 3? ). Samsung is an outsider here ...

In America u can patent silly things like "Yoga Posture" and who knows even postures in loo.

that is a good point - strange how their own country banned some their products recently, but I believe the government views companies such as Walmart and APPLE untouchable and gives them much leeway in how the operate business.

They just don't give leeway on American soil to Walmart but also try and push them in countries like India where there's stiff opposition to entry of Walmart. Walmart is not meant for India but yet underhand dealings are repeatedly being attempted through politicians with vested interests on both sides. Same applies to GMO companies like Mosantao et al. it all boils down to who funds whom during elections :)

great points - here in the states our government has always been underhanded with other governments forcing capitalism/our ideals on other countries/cultures.

Check on case of patent being granted on "Basmati" to Rice Tech Inc in 1997 which was done in blatant violation of "TRIPS". So if patent office violates intl treaties to benefit the personal profits of few greedy corporates then there's something definitely not in proper order and all this is GREED driven than sanity driven :)

Sorry for being off-topic but was needed to defend my point of view.

Especially when Apple atty, said in his closing argument," Don't let THEM take it from US"... in which we all know what that subliminal statement means here in the USA.

If Samsung was Smart they will go back and file copy infringment on Apple over the F700 in S.Korea and with the WTO..but make sure they do it in their home country...because here in the States ( sorry to say this)..they have no chance!!...now Google has a great chance of winning.

Yeah, all companies are American, so at least the court will be fair. If they're not...well, we all know who paid them not to be.
