Apple looses court battle in Japan
- Middle East: Sunday, September 02 - 2012 at 11:32
Apple's claim that Samsung stole its technology has been rejected by a Japanese court, dealing a blow to the iPhone maker after last week winning $1.05bn in damages in the US from its rival, AFP has reported. The Japanese court found that Samsung did not infringe on Apple's iPhone and iPad patents for some of its own Galaxy smartphones and tablet computer. The three-judge panel also awarded legal costs to Samsung. "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. Apple had sought damages and the block of sales of its some of Samsung's products in the lucrative Japanese market.
