Apple v. Samsung: Permanent Injunction Denied

Apple v. Samsung is a well-publicized case involving smartphones.  Today U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh denied Apple's motion for a permanent injunction on the Apple patents that the jury found Samsung infringed.  The order is here; Patently-O's discussion is here.  The court also denied Samsung's request for a new trial based on jury misconduct; that order is here.

It is likely that Apple will ask for additional damages based on Samsung's infringement of the patents after the jury verdict a few months ago, although since Samsung apparently has discontinued most of not all of the infringing features, that won't amount to much.  Both sides can appeal these orders to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals.
