Netherlands denies Samsung’s request for injunction against Apple
As the Samsung vs. Apple battle continues to rage around the world, Samsung has been denied its request for an injunction against Apple. Samsung had requested a ban of iPhones and iPads in the Netherlands on the basis of a 3G patent infringement. The court determined that Samsung could not pursue a case against Apple products that use Qualcomm’s baseband chips because Samsung has a licensing deal with the chipset manufacturer.

It wasn’t all bad news for the South Korean company, as the Hague court did rule that Samsung could continue to seek damages over the use of Intel chips. Samsung said that this motion would allow it to move forward with the protection of its patent rights.

It continued on to say, “Samsung has and will continue to stand ready to meet its obligations in licensing its technology on fair and reasonable terms."
