    Default Samsung's Attempt To Ban iPhone Sales in Japan Fails


    Not really sure why Samsung thought this would pass. Samsung requested to a Japan court for iPhone sales to be banned in Japan. This all comes due to Samsung claiming that Apple stole its technology patents. Samsung had sought an injunction that would prevent the manufacture and sale of some of Apple's smartphones in a dispute over patent rights

    The Tokyo District Court rejected the request, citing Samsung’s apparent failure to sincerely negotiate with Apple over licensing patents. The court also ruled that Samsung does not have the right to seek damages from Apple, which is really not surprising at all. They were really reaching hard for this one.

    Samsung told Bloomberg that it is disappointed with the decision and that it will take further measures to protect its intellectual property. Apple did not comment the ruling, of course.

    "After studying details of the court ruling we will take necessary measures to protect our property rights," -Samsung
    These two tech giants have been battling each other for over 3 years now. Apple and Samsung have been neck and neck for sales in Europe, America, Australia and Asia, all with various results

    In August, the Tokyo District Court rejected Apple's claim that Samsung stole its technology over synchronizing a smartphone's music data with that on a computer.

    The two companies are waging the patent fight in about 10 countries, and in Japan there are about a dozen cases pending. Sounds like a cluster of craziness if you ask me.

    Oh here we go....Samsung turning into Apple....go play with your droid.
    Apple protects what is rightfully theirs, Samsung has built an empire Stealing others ideas, that's a well known proven fact. Try arguing with facts...what a new concept. Samsung has repeatedly tried to bully courts and their rulings not to mention down right lie and cheat during trials. if you owned a business would you not protect it? Yah, probably not....that's probably why you need to leave right now and go work in a drive thru somewhere.

    Define saint in a business world, yes they protect what the law says is theirs, until that law changes its mind. Don't be so short minded, review facts then make or try to make intelligent comments. Good luck.
