Samsung wins patent case against Apple in Japan

Coming off a major U.S. copyright victory against the same rival just a week ago, Apple lost a case friday in Japan, where the court rejected Apple’s claim that Samsung stole its technology.

The japanese district court judge denied Apple’s allegation that Samsung had copied one of its smartphone features, related to the synching of media files. “The defendant’s products do not seem like they used the same technology as the plaintiff’s products so we turn down the complaints made by Apple,” Judge Tamotsu Shoji told the court.

The 3-judge panel also awarded legal costs to Samsung.

In a statement, Samsung crowed: “We welcome the court’s decision, which confirmed our long-held position that our products do not infringe Apple’s intellectual property.”

 

Apple Inc. of the U.S. and Samsung Electronics Co. of South Korea are embroiled in legal battles in 10 nations over intellectual property, spanning dozens of cases. Here are some details about Apple vs Samsung legal battles :

in the US, Apple scored a major victory on Aug. 24, and was awarded more than $1 billion in damages. A hearing was rescheduled for Dec. 6.

in South Korea, the court on Aug. 24 dismissed Apple’s claim that Samsung copied the look and feel of the iPhone and the iPad in a ruling widely seen as a victory for Samsung.

in Japan, the Tokyo District Court denied Apple’s claim on Aug. 31 that Samsung infringed upon Apple’s patent to have mobile devices and personal computers “synchronize” or share data with each other. Other cases in Japan are still pending.

in Germany, a Dusseldorf court said last month Samsung’s Galaxy Tap 7.7 imitated Apple’s design in an “unacceptable manner” and ordered European sales stopped. But the court said another Samsung tablet computer no longer infringed Apple’s iPad patents or designs after making enough changes. Other cases are still pending.

in Australia, Samsung became free to sell its Galaxy tablet computers after the country’s highest court dismissed Apple’s appeal in December 2011. But separate legal battles are ongoing over various patents.

At this time, there isn’t any real winner. And will there be one? Final Verdict in a few years.
