Apple wins preliminary injunction on Samsung GALAXY Nexus, can aim for Samsung Galaxy S III next
Judge Lucy Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California has issued a preliminary injunction against the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, giving Apple what it requested. The Cupertino based firm accused Samsung of infringing on four of its patents in the production of the phone and will have to post a bond of nearly $96 million to get the injunction to take effect. A patent involving Siri and unified search, one of the four that Samsung allegedly infringed upon, met the legal requirements allowing the Judge to order the injunction.The scary thing for Samsung is that Apple can now set its sights on the Samsung Galaxy S III. Apple was going to add the extremely popular device to this case, as there are two patents involved with the GALAXY Nexus that Apple thinks can stick in court, including the '604 Siri patent. Apple does have a tough decision to make. If it decides to ask for a preliminary injunction against the Samsung Galaxy S III, it will have to postpone the trial of the first lawsuit against Samsung. However, a motion over one patent wouldn't take too long and we would imagine that Apple would relish the opportunity to get sales of the sizzling hot Samsung Galaxy S III halted, even if only temporarily.source: FOSSPatents
