Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The news from the Apple vs Samsung battle keeps coming as Judge Koh last night rejected Apple´s request to ban a host of Samsung devices. While the judge also threw out Samsung´s claims of jury misconduct, her denial of a permanent injunction against these devices could hinder any further legal action Apple might seek against other tech companies.

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In August, Samsung was famously ordered to pay a sum of more than $1 billion to Apple for infringing on some of their design patents.

Apple Vs Samsung: Crack-smoking Lawyers?
2012-08-17 08:56:37

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online We noted early on Thursday that Judge Koh was beginning to get frustrated with both Apple and Samsung in their debates with one another.

2012-08-05 04:41:18

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In this, the first week of the international Olympic Games, Apple took on Samsung in legal feats of strength. In doing so, of course, they´ve had to reveal some of their secret sauce, bad for their egos, but good for those of us nosey Apple watchers. They also released some new, terrible ads meant to bring more people into the fold, (I guess) and the rumor mill has finally whittled down a possible iPhone announcement....

2012-08-01 05:17:02

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online The jury has officially been picked, and now the real fun begins: opening statements from Apple and Samsung´s legal beagles. No day 2 of any patent lawsuit would not be complete, of course, without a fun and educational video explaining what patents are and how companies get them, topped off with a stubborn Samsung throwing a bit of a tantrum before they started their opening statements. All in all, it sounds like it was...
