Apple Seeks Injunction Against 8 Samsung Phones
Category: Tablets, Smartphones
In response to an order from Judge Lucy Koh, Apple has filed what it called a "tailored" list of Samsung products on the sale of which it seeks a court injunction.
There are 8 phones on the list, well short of the 28 products found by the jury to infringe Apple's intellectual property. Apple reserved the right to seek permanent injunctions against the remaining models at a later date.
The list contains many old models and none of the company's most recent, although those are the subject of other litigation.
- Galaxy S 4G
- Galaxy S2 AT&T model
- Galaxy S2 Skyrocket
- Galaxy S2 T-Mobile model
- Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
- Galaxy S Showcase
- Droid Charge
- Galaxy Prevail
The inclusion on the list may lead to emergency sales, such as this one from T-Mobile:
In similar ironic news, an AFP report on Apple's injunction list cites "...reports that US consumers were snapping up Samsung devices in anticipation of a possible ban."
