US court of Appeal besmirch Judge Koh’s statements: Galaxy Nexus ban uplifted
A panel of judges from the US Court of appeals has uplifted the US ban of Galaxy Nexus, the original nexus from Google and Samsung. A ray of hope for Samsung and Android as a whole!
Just when Apple thought they are done with Samsung completely, the US Court of Appeals proved them wrong. A panel of judges from the US Court of appeals has uplifted the US ban of Galaxy Nexus, the original nexus from Google and Samsung. A ray of hope for Samsung and Android as a whole!
The US Court of Appeals has stated Judge Koh’s decision as derogatory in terms of the Operating system. The court that the Galaxy Nexus runs stock Android and not regular stuff other Samsung handsets do. Apple sued Samsung over the slide-unlock feature primarily developed in iOS.
“It may very well be that the accused product would sell almost as well without incorporating the patented feature, “And in that case, even if the competitive injury that results from selling the accused device is substantial, the harm that flows from the alleged infringement (the only harm that should count) is not.”. This came out from one of the court’s statements.
Apple had accused Samsung of trade dress dilution, a tradition in which one product develops a mindset in customers that when one’s having a handset with similar features with a lower price, why go for something pricey.
