Apple denied injunction on Samsung products In what is huge news for both companies, Apple has been denied in their request for a permanent sales injunction on Samsung products.
Apple had tried to get sales banned in the U.S. for 26 Samsung products including many popular Galaxy phones and tablets after winning a patent verdict in August against the company.

Judge Lucy Koh ruled that Apple has not established the case for a permanent injunction on Samsung's products because they were not able to prove that the "infringing features were what were directly driving consumer demand for the accused product."

Additionally, "neither statements about broad categories, nor evidence of copying, nor the conjoint survey provides sufficiently strong evidence of causation. Without a causal nexus, this Court cannot conclude that the irreparable harm supports entry of an injunction."

Samsung owes Apple $1.049 billion for the patent infringements.

I just bought the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 but not because it had Apple-ish features -- I bought it because it's NOT Apple.
