Sprint Says Device Bans Cause Collateral Damage
Sprint filed an amicus brief with the Federal Court overseeing the Apple vs. Samsung patent trial bemoaning the use of preliminary injunctions to halt device sales. Sprint argues that "bringing a device to market takes hundreds of people approximately 9-12 months" and that "an immediate preliminary injunction against a device substantially and irreparably harms Sprint by leaving a void in its device portfolio." Sprint was forced to delay the launch of the HTC EVO 4G LTE earlier this year due to such a ban. Sprint officially opposes the court's current ban on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which it also sells. Apple and Samsung are in the middle of a protracted war over smartphone patents, and the Galaxy Nexus is the focus of preliminary injunction request by Apple. The judge overseeing the case issued a preliminary injunction banning sales of the Galaxy Nexus, but then stayed it pending appeal.
