Samsung v. Apple (2011, France)

From en.swpat.org
Jump to: navigation, search
This is one of the cases from the Samsung v. Apple lawsuits worldwide overview.

Samsung accuses Apple of violating its smartphone patents.

[edit] Minor note

The judge mentions that:

The Hague Court also mentioned that it could not be excluded that Samsung’s action be considered on the merits as an abuse of the right to initiate legal actions.
Original: Le tribunal de la Haye a également indiqué qu'il ne pouvait pas être exclu que l'action de SAMSUNG soit considérée au fond comme un abus du droit d'ester en justice.

...which gives hope for the practicality of suing makers of unfounded accusations, but this remains a resource-intensive action, and blocking individual attacks won't improve the general situation.
