Apple was unable to convince the courts to issue a preliminary injunction that would have banned Samsung from selling some of its Galaxy smartphones in the U.S. Apple sued Samsung in April in the U.S., alleging that the Korean company "slavishly" copied its smartphone and tablet designs. It asked the judge overseeing the case to issue a preliminary injunction that would have prevented Samsung from selling the infringing devices immediately, but the judge was not convinced. "It is not clear that an injunction on Samsung's accused devices would prevent Apple from being irreparably harmed," wrote U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose. Samsung was pleased with the judge's decision. "This ruling confirms our long-held view that Apple's arguments lack merit," said a spokesperson in an email to Reuters. Though Apple has been denied this preliminary injunction, the matter is still headed to court, of which judge Koh wrote, "Apple has established a likelihood of success on the merits at trial." The two companies have 20 pending patent and design lawsuits across 10 countries.

Finally let the world move forward and continue innovating products. I am so sick and tired of companies suing each other because of ridiculous patents!

It is time to move forward and create more innovative technologies!! Tired of living in the 21st century I want a wrist watch type phone with bendable screen and keyboard that just pops out of no where to be a holographic touch screen please lol Very Happy
As it is,Apple will sue just about anyone that dares manufacture any phone that is not an old style flip phone. If it's touch screen,you're getting sued for sure.
