Samsung Apple Lawsuit: Apple Wins Patent Lawsuit Against Samsung in UK

Samsung Apple Lawsuit: As you probably know by now, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung are locked up in legal battles all over the globe. Yesterday, the Cupertino-based company one upped Samsung in a patent case in a UK court.

Apple Inc. (AAPL) to be Added to Several WisdomTree ETFsApple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is actually the smart money’s second favorite publicly traded company but hedge funds have started dumping Apple in favor of a surprising financial stock (see which stock hedge funds are buying like crazy).

According to ZDNet, “Judge Christopher Floyd ruled in a London court on Wednesday that Apple’s products do not infringe Samsung’s patents around the ability to send and receive information from a device over a 3G network.”

As you can see by this information, Samsung filed suit against Apple as it felt that the company was infringing on its patent to send and receive information over a 3G network.

While Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) declined to discuss the verdict, here is what a spokesperson for Samsung had to say:

“We are disappointed by the court’s decision. Upon a thorough review of the judgment, we will decide whether to file an appeal. For decades, we have heavily invested in pioneering the development of technological innovations in the mobile industry, which have been constantly reflected in our products.”

With this latest claim invalidated, Samsung is starting to lose momentum in its battle to receive roughly 2.5 percent royalties on all sales of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) 3G devices.

Florian Muller, a software patents expert, spoke with ZDNet about the situation:

“On a worldwide basis Apple has now fended off 24 assertions of Standard-Essential Patents (SEPs) by Samsung. Samsung prevailed only on three such patents, two of them in Korea.”

“With every win Apple scores, Samsung’s demand for a 2.4 percent royalty on Apple’s sales of 3G-capable products looks more ridiculous.”

The two companies have been battling on legal turf since 2011. While there are many battles ongoing in the United States, cases have been based in various other countries including but not limited to the UK, Australia, France, and Japan.
