EU planning anti-trust case against Samsung; Apple appeals Koh's ruling on a sales ban

dropped its request for a permanent injunction on Apple devices in Germany, U.K., France, Italy and the Netherlands.
Meanwhile, Apple has filed with the U.S. Federal Appeals Court in Washington, seeking a review of the ruling made by Judge Lucy Koh last week. In her ruling, the judge refused to order a permanent ban in the U.S. against certain Samsung devices that the jury found were infringing on Apple patents. Koh said that Apple failed to prove that the technology allegedly stolen by Samsung from Apple was driving sales of those same Samsung devices. The same day, Judge Koh refused Samsung's request for a new trial based on the actions of jury foreman Velvin Hogan. A Samsung spokesman in Seoul, Nam Ki Yung, had no comment on the story.

samsung have been caught before in lcd screen price fixing. so this is not a surprise. they have so much cash right now they can afford to pay all the fines that are or will be impose against them.

while that may be true, i dont think its about whether they can "cover" they're dirt because they have the cash to do so........but more so about justice being served to even the "smallest" of errors.... because if you let the small things go then you will allow people to feel as if they can get away with big things as well

EU went against M$'s Internet Explorer to give a push to dying Opera. So who knows this could just be something with Nokia in mind ... conspiracy theory :D

Hadn't even thought of that... I could see the EU cater to Nokia the same way the US caters to Apple, and South Korea caters to Samsung. I do think Samsung screwed up and overstepped their bounds, but that's a conspiracy theory banner that just might have a pole with a good foundation.
