Samsung has asked a U.S. court to stand by its initial ruling that denied Apple its own pre-trial request to block sales of the Galaxy Nexus. The initial ruling was made in October, but Apple appealed. Apple wants to ban sales of the Galaxy Nexus in the U.S. ahead of a patent-related trial that is not expected to begin until March 2014. Apple asked all nine of the judges in the Federal Circuit to reexamine the decision. Samsung filed documents with the court last week suggesting that Apple doesn't have enough evidence for such a ban. Samsung's request comes after several government organizations have suggested they don't like the idea of banning products over patent infringement claims. In a separate lawsuit, Samsung was hit with a $1.05 billion infringement verdict, but in that case the judge denied Apple's request for a product ban. The amount of money Samsung has to pay Apple is not yet finalized. The two companies are at odds with one another in courtrooms around the globe over patents pertaining to smartphones.

The US Federal Trade Commission has decided not to appeal its antitrust case against Qualcomm to the US Supreme Court, effectively ending the matter in Qualcomm's favor. The FTC sued in 2017, claiming that the way Qualcomm links the sales of baseband processors with patent licensing amounts to anticompetitive behavior and unfair business practices.

A US appeals court has issued a new ruling declaring that Customs and Border Protection agents can conduct both basic and "advanced" searches of electronic devices at US borders without needing a warrant nor reasonable suspicion. The new ruling overturns a district court decision from January 2020 that ruled such searches unconstitutional.
What is Apple's obsession...
I mean, I understand (to a degree) why they insist on filing patent and trademark lawsuits, and that is certainly their legal right to do, but......goddamn it seems like every time they file a claim they want the court to immediately and unilaterally ban anything and everything Apple lists in the suit, on Apple's word that the products are infringing before there is a trial to determine guilt or damages. And this is even after at least one government agency has come out against banning anything over a patent dispute.
I just find it really quite odd how they handle themselves.
It's why they are down under $500 from their $700+ high... people see the lack of a future.
