Eight Samsung Phones Got US Sale-Ban
According to the court ruling in the trial between Apple and Samsung, the first one announced a list of Samsung devices the company looks forward to ban from sale in the country.
In general 28 Samsung devices were included in that case, but only eight out of those got on the “black” list. These are: Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile), Galaxy S II (AT&T), Galaxy S II Skyrocket (AT&T), Galaxy S II (T-Mobile), Galaxy S II Epic 4G (Sprint), Droid Charge (Verizon), Galaxy Prevail (Boost Mobile) and Galaxy S Showcase (C-Spire, Cellular South).
Apple emphasized the definite patent infringement and brought the case to court. The trial went on for about a month and the case was finally wrapped up last week. The Galaxy S 4G was claimed to be the device that is the most infringements. Basically, it was found to infringe 2 design patents of Apple, 3 utility patents, and also 2 trade dress claims.
The generous jury calculated the amount worth of the damages and decided to award Apple with about $460.8 million. However, that amount could still be significantly higher pending a ruling from L. Koh, U.S. District Court Judge, presiding over the “Apple vs. Samsung” case.
Apple claims that that list is just to address a portion of the irreversible damage that the company is suffering now.
It should be underlined that the list does not include Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1. The jury found this device to infringe on 3 utility patents of the Apple Company. When all of the verdict findings were cited last Sunday, the Samsung Company intended to get a preliminary injunction against the dissolved device. Separately from such a filing, Apple stated that it still requires Samsung’s 4G version of the tablet to be added to those in bans, claiming it did not differ in color from the mentioned infringing devices.
