Appeals Court says Samsung GALAXY Nexus sales can continue during trial
posted by Alan F. / Jul 30, 2012, 7:46 PM
Judge Koh had slapped the injunction on the Samsung GALAXY Nexus for its alleged infringement of the '604 Siri patent which has to do with universal or local search on the device. Subsequent updates by Samsung removed the offending feature from the phone as well as from the Sprint and AT&T versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Sammy did not want to take a chance of having its flagship model banned. While the local search feature was removed from the international variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the Korean manufacturer said that the update that removed the feature was sent n error and a subsequent update reinstated local search on the GT-i9300.
Moving back to the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, Judge Koh said that Apple had presented a "plausible theory" of irreparable harm and long-term loss of market share from the alleged infringement. Samsung clams that Siri is a different feature than the unified search covered in the '604 patent and that the patent is invalid and is interpreted incorrectly.
Samsung GALAXY Nexus OS: Android 4.3, 4.2.2, 4.2.1, 4.2, 4.1.2, 4.1, 4.0.4, 4.0.1, 4.0 View Full specs
- Display 4.7" 720 x 1280 pixels

- Processor TI OMAP4460, Dual-core, 1200 MHz

I'd still like to know how Apple is claiming loss when they are the highest in smart phone profits.

It's a loss when a competitor steals your likeness and designs and implements on their phones. It's kind of ironic. People want Android, but they choose a phone that has many design and UI cues from the iPhone.

Yet to be proven, it's only the first day of trial. I don't know of anyone, nor heard of anyone that bought an Android phone because they felt it looked like an iPhone. Everyone I do know bought Android phones because they don't look like iPhones.

Dang. Another loss for Apple. What happened to their open-and-shut case?

The truth is... he isn't going to reply to your question, because he doesn't have an answer. It's a thing that he does, whenever he loses an debate, he'll pretend the debate never existed. Welcome to taco world.

If Google tells you(samsung) to stop copying, then you know something's wrong.

If only someone had told Apple to stop copying Sony, the LG Prada's shape, design and capacitive screen, Neonode's Swipe to unlock, Palm's grid of icons, the University of Delaware's multitouch,...

So does Apple now go back and sue Google over (now-defunct) Google Desktop? How about using a dictionary and then going to dictionary.com? Or searching your personal data in the cloud? Would Xerox please sue the whole world over the use of the mouse?

Xerox did sue Apple over their theft of the GUI. Fortunately, at that time our country had sane patent laws, and software patents didn't exist, so they lost. Today, with our paid for legislators, software patents have been slipped in, and we're all paying the price for it.
