U.S. Appeals Court gives Apple a chance to immediately block Samsung tablet sales
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ruled that a district court judge in California erred when he ruled that Apple didn't prove that it could win a patent infringement case against Samsung. As a result, the Appeals Court says that Apple can now ask the court for an immediate ban against the sales of some Samsung tablets.

Apple claims that Samsung copied its designs on some Galaxy devices

The patent infringement case against Samsung revolves around one patent that is part of a larger case being heard in California. In the middle of last month, both sides agreed to have talks at the CEO level in an attempt to end the court battles.Those talks are scheduled for next Monday and Tuesday. The court battles between the Cupertino, California based Apple and the Korea based Samsung started when the former accused the latter of copying the design of the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad in its Galaxy line of devices. Samsung then countersued Apple.

For those keeping score,
the case in U.S. District Court, Northern District of California is Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co Ltd et al, 11-1846. The case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is Apple, Inc v. Samsung Electronics Co Ltd et al, 2012-1105.

And since apples "products" are stuffed full of Samsung parts, every argument you make is invalid.

Dumbass.

Didn't say it was. I was calling him out on the irony of him hating samsung when they make a lot of the internals for apples novelties.

duh!!! its economics.......................non core production!!! there aint any moral motive involved like-------"Im usin ya processor.........so dnt worry...............il hardly compete against you"

doesnt work that way.........the marketing sector n production sector work seperately.

right now its the marketin n sales sector of apple's that's playin stupid..............................where in the background the same sector is suffering with all non core units for the production line of their products!!!!

So humandroid's reply is valid in every sense!!

K? That's all apple does is copy features from other manufacturers, I'm shocked you would slam the company you're so disturbingly in love with like that.

Apple's goal is to have an iphone in every household and every hand of every person in America...then hit the self destruct button.
