An appeals court today said a lower court was wrong to deny Apple's request of an injunction against select Samsung smartphones. In May 2014, a jury awarded Apple $120 million in a case against Samsung concerning patents. Despite the victory, the court did not agree with Apple's wish to ban the offending handsets. The U.S Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit said the lower court "abused its discretion" by denying the injunction. The appeals court did not detail what steps Apple may take next, nor did it say if the ban should now be put in place. Apple did not immediately offer comment on the decision.

These patents never should have been granted anyway...

One of the patents in question are for creating links in text fields, like when you can click on a phone number in a text or email and it opens in the phone dialer. My Treo could do that.
The other is for slide to unlock, yet another feature that was available on some phones before Apple. Sounds like BS to me, that they were ever granted, and also that a judge could find for them again, so Im guessing the judge just got a lifetime of iDevice upgrades.

Where was the appeals court? Cupertino?

Samsung phones have never looked like iPhones. iPhones are now looking like HTC phones. And copying a bunch of features in Android. Who is copying who?
Will if your apple, everyone is copying you the poor underdog all american company.

Even in 2014 the phones in question weren't actively being sold.
