Judge Scraps Apple's Bid to Block Samsung Sales | The Recorder. I admit a bias in favor of Samsung phones. I have bought a few of them. I have even bought some Apple IPhones; but, only because people I love wanted them. However, getting an injunction against Samsung phones has proven to be an elusive goal for Apple, in its misguided litigation against Samsung. Yes, a jury found that Samsung copied some vague look and feel design of Apple. I am not going to relitigate the case here. However, Apple must, in order to obtain a permanent injunction barring the sale of the affected products, prove that the consumers bought them due to the infringement. Since Samsung phones have so many innovative (and patented) features that Apple phones lack, finding sufficient evidence to prove causation is proving impossible for Apple. Good. Hey, Apple, how about getting back to making innovative products? You have already lost your edge. Get to work.
