The High Court in London upheld an earlier ruling that said Samsungs Galaxy Tab tablet line doesnt infringe on Apples patents.
Florian Mueller of FOSS Patents notes that the decision is in line with similar court rulings on the same patent in Germany and the UK.
In June, a Netherlands court found Apple to have infringed on a 3G patent owned by its rival.
After a devastating $1.05 billion loss over the summer, its been a good few weeks for Samsung in its legal battle against Apple.
With the appeal shot down, Apple can appeal to the UK Supreme Court, or it will now have to run the pro Samsung ads — a move its legal team said would cause Apple “irreparable and disproportionate harm.”.
In August, Apple won a $1.05 billion US jury verdict in a patent case between the companies, while a week later a Tokyo court ruled Samsung products don’t infringe an Apple invention for synchronizing music and video data with servers.
Major employers of patent examiners are the European Patent Office , the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the Japan Patent Office.
When we first saw the Samsung products in this case we were struck by how similar they look to the Apple design when they are resting on a table.
