Apple is looking to get another win against Samsung in an ongoing patent battle, as a Japanese court declares that the Korean company has been found breaching the tech giant’s patents.

According to Apple Insider, Samsung infringed such documents that are related to Standards Essential Patents, with a view to banning a number of Apple’s products and force the company to pay a high amount of royalty.

However, the court orders Apple to pay Samsung $95,000 for the patent licensing purposes, which is almost close to the tech giant’s desired fee.

Apple is obviously very pleased with the Judge’s decision. A Japanese official working at Apple stated, “We offer high praise that the court took the corresponding actions [against] Samsung [and] was resolute to try to protect the integrity of the international patent system. In an attempt to convince the court that the patent is not an issue, Samsung has recklessly ignored intellectual property rights around the world.”

Apple and Samsung have been indulged in patent battles for the past few years. However, the Cupertino company was victorious in most of the cases. However, the latest rule of the Japanese court has definitely taken the tech giant closer to another win over the Korean company.
