Japanese court nixes Samsung's patent claim against Apple

Sunday 3 March 2013 | 23:50 CET | News
The Tokyo District Court has rejected a patent infringement claim by Samsung against Apple. The court ruled that Samsung has no rights over data transmission technology that is used in some Apple iPhones, AFP reports citing a Samsung Tokyo spokesperson. Samsung had sought an injunction to stop the manufacture and sales of certain iPhones in Japan, claiming that Apple infringed on its patents. Apple, in response, argued that Samsung does not hold patent rights and thus cannot claim damages.
