Appeals Court overrturns injunction on Samsung GALAXY Nexus

Ironically, the Samsung GALAXY Nexus wasn't even part of the trial that resulted in a $1.05 billion verdict in favor of Apple. Judge Koh had issued the injunction against the Samsung GALAXY Nexus prior to the trial, agreeing with Apple that the phone infringed on Apple's '604 unified search patent also known as the Siri patent The injunction was stayed by the Appeals Court until it could make a ruling on the matter, which it has now done.
with a single search. The Appeals Court remanded the case back to Judge Koh.
An injunction that the judge had placed on the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 was dismissed by Judge Koh earlier this month. Koh had placed a sales ban on the tablet before the trial saying that a reasonable jury would find that the tablet infringed on Apple's design patents for the Apple iPad. Surprise! The jury found that the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 did not infringe on Apple's design patents and while the jury did find that it had violated some of Apple's software patents, Judge Koh set the tablet free.

"The Appeals Court said it reversed Judge Koh not only because she had abused her discretion, but also because Apple could not prove that buyers were purchasing the Samsung GALAXY Nexus because of the infringing technology." Ya dig? Sounds like while bat s**t insanity is taking root elseware, common sense is seeping in through some cracks... QUICK APPLE! Better plug up those cracks with some green paper fast, the old filling has dissapeared!

It's not surprising that the appeals court overturned the injunction ruling. It's asinine that Judge Kohn would ban a product just over a simple search feature that could be easily fixed with a quick update. I think it's time for Judge Koh to take off the robe.

Funny... I have unified search on my One S.. funny because I never even use it. Neat feature I guess but pointless. Although I know why apple had to put it in their software, I don't know how many times I have to tell people to "put your finger in the left side of the screen,and now slide it to the right, this will open a keyboard" so some people can find the settings. If only they had a way to easily find the home button on Ios devices.... Seriously! The home button... Is hard to figure out for some people

All these court dramas seems to be more popular than launch of new phones these days. Apple in particular should concentrate on making better phones/tablets that could attract more people (not just their fanbase) and stop all this nuisance.
