Samsung Denied By Federal Circuit Court of Appeals

| News

Samsung recently tried to bring back a patent cases against Apple that had been dismissed by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC). Reuters reported that the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit denied Samsung's appeal on Wednesday.

Last June, the ITC issued a ruling that Apple hadn’t infringed on the Samsung patents in question and the appeals court agreed. After the decision, Samsung declined to comment, Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment, and the court issued no additional information about the decision.

This is Samsung’s standard move, so expect at least another few attempts at getting this appeal off the ground. Not to brag, but here at TMO Towers we totally called it in the latest round of legal wrangling.

Seriously? How much more “no” can Samsung take? This is just using the court system as a business model and I really hope to see a serious smackdown over it soon. On the other hand, I’m impressed with a company that can spend this much time in court and probably released another phone or two in the time it took to read this article.

They will continue to do this until it is made financially unpalatable. That would take somebody slapping a major fine on them for wasting the court’s time. A major fine would have a B in it. Unfortunately, our system is not set up that way.
