The biggest news coming out last week was Apple’s landslide win against Samsung in their patent trial. As jurors speak out and people go through the ruling, doubts have started cropping up. For one, the jury seems to have discarded any prior art claims from Samsung which was a major part of Samsung’s defense. The jurors also fined Samsung for Galaxy Tab which they found not to be violating any patents. Prima facie, it appears the jury was dependent on the “patent applicant” juror; poor call. No other court has given Apple a similar victory which only points to the Jobs Reality Field.
Following the victory, Apple lawyers are taking their next step according to Bloomberg. In a developing story, Apple wants a ban on 8 Samsung devices:
- Samsung S 4G
- Samsung S2 (on AT&T, T-Mobile)
- Samsung Skyrocket
- Droid Charge
- Galazy Prevail
- Galaxy S Showcase
- Samsung S2 Epic 4G
More details as we get them.
Update: According to Bloomberg, Judge Koh is expected to follow up on this injunction around September 20th.
