Apple's request to ban Samsung products denied

Apple could not prove it would be "irreparably harmed"

Apple’s request for a preliminary injunction against Samsung’s products was denied on Friday. This means that Galaxy S 4G, Infuse 4G, Droid Charge and Galaxy Tab 10.1 will not be pulled from retail in the US and, most likely, that legal battles will be Apple’s main business for years to come.

California district judge Lucy Koh said that Apple could not prove that it would be “irreparably harmed” by sales of Samsung’s devices. Koh wrote:"Indeed, given the evidence Samsung presented, it seems likely that a major beneficiary of an injunction would be other smartphone manufacturers."

It was concluded that Apple’s design complaints, including device size, screen size and speaker position, do not hold water. Thus, Apple cannot be the only one that launches such devices. The company is yet to comment on the ruling.

Samsung’s spokesperson, on the other hand, welcomed the ruling and said it confirms that Apple’s arguments are void. More importantly, the company says that it has “raised substantial questions about the validity of Apple design patents.”

The case continues on July 30, 2012, but we’re sure we’ll hear much more by then.
