Earlier we have published many news regarding Apple vs Samsung’s patent violations. The more days are passing, the more the battle between this two giants are getting deeper and interesting. A couple of weeks ago, Galaxy Nexus was banned in the US. The latest news is that the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has suspended that sales ban of Galaxy Nexus in US temporarily.
Apple succeeded to ban the Galaxy Nexus in the US couple of weeks ago. Apple posted a $95.6 million bond to enact the Nexus sales ban. But, California-based U.S. District Court Judge, Lucy Koha lifted the ban on the sales of the Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Nexus. According to AllThingsD, Apple has time till Thursday (12 July, 2012) to submit an argument that says why the handset should be banned outright. And if it can’t, the Nexus could well be straight back on the shelves.
On the other side, Apple filed a case of banning Galaxy Tab 10.1 in US because it infringes the design patent of iPad. Court agreed with Apple and therefore banned the sales of Galaxy Tab 10.1 in US too. Apple posted a $2.6 million bond to enact the Galaxy Tab 10.1 sales ban.
Though court has temporary relief the sales ban on Galaxy Nexus smartphone, but the South Korean giant is still disappointed as the court denied Samsung Electronics’ request to lift the ban prevailing on the U.S. sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1.
