Samsung: Please Dismiss Apple's Japanese Court Appeal

Samsung wants to keep its rare victory safe and sound

Samsung doesn't like the fact that Apple is appealing one of the only victories that has been handed to Samsung in the epic legal battle that continues to unfold between the two companies.

While Samsung has been found guilty of patent infringement in a number of courts around the world, a similar case in Tokyo was dismissed.

On August 31, it was decided in a Tokyo court decision that Samsung did not violate an Apple patent related to synchronizing music and video in server databases.

Judge Tamotsu Shoji wrote in her ruling, "It’s hard to believe the products belong to the range of technologies of the claimant."

He told Apple that it had to pay Samsung's legal fees. Apple had sought to win around $1.3 million in damages.

Because there are enough legal battles between the two companies to write an entire law school textbook, it's hard to keep track of them all, but this claim is different than the one in the landmark ruling in the US.

It seems to be the international norm that Samsung did indeed violate at least some Apple patents related to smartphone and tablet technology, but the extent and the degree of the infractions is really in question.

In the US, of course, there is a mighty appeals process in the works, and Samsung recently won a small victory when a preliminary ban on its smartphones was overturned, pending the results of further appeal claims.

With regard to the Japanese case, though, Apple is appealing the decision, but Samsung says there is no legal basis to warrant a full-on appeal process. Samsung's request to nix Apple's appeal was just recently given to the court. The next round of talks will be on March 21.

Oct 1 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: 9to5Mac

In fact, for August the iPhone 5c was the best selling smartphone in the UK, even outselling the iPhone 5s, according to Kantar World Panel.

Ian Kar, writing for Bank Innovation: Apple and PayPal started talking early on in Apple’s development of Apple Pay, as Apple was setting up partnerships with the card issuing banks and card networks. Since PayPal’s a payments industry leader, it would have been shortsighted for Apple to not reach out to PayPal.
