Apple Defeats Samsung Patent Infringement Lawsuit in the U.K.
Apple has won a U.K. patent infringement lawsuit exonerating itself from charges that it unlawfully used Samsung technology, reports Reuters.
Samsung had argued that three individual patents relating to processing and transmitting data on 3G mobile networks had been infringed, but the court found all three claims invalid. This is the latest case in a global barrage of claims and counterclaims between the two companies, which between them account for one in every two smartphones sold worldwide.
Samsung said it will consider whether to file an appeal. "Upon a thorough review of the judgment we will decide whether to file an appeal," said a spokeswoman.
