T-Mobile Files Brief Supporting Samsung Against Apple
T-Mobile has filed an amicus curiae ('friend of the court') brief in support of Samsung against Apple, reports FOSS Patents. The company is hoping to prevent Apple's request for a US-wide preliminary injunction prohibiting the sale of numerous Samsung devices.
T-Mobile also filed a formal request for permission to be admitted to the proceedings as a third party and a motion to shorten time in order to ensure that the court will decide on the admission of T-Mobile ahead of the scheduled Apple hearing on October 13th.
FOSS Patents notes that the similarities between Verizon's brief and T-Mobile's are striking; however, T-Mobile does not limit its arguments to the software patents but also includes the design patents.
"T-Mobile's public interest arguments, however, apply to all the asserted patents, including the Design Patents."
