So much for momentum. A German court ruled on Friday that Samsung’s Galaxy devices don’t infringe on Apple’s touchscreen patents.
In a statement following the court’s decision, Samsung said, “We welcome today’s ruling, which affirms our position that our products do not infringe Apple’s intellectual property. We will continue to further develop and introduce products that enhance the lives of German consumers.”
On August 24, a federal jury in California found that Samsung willfully ripped off Apple’s technology and designs with a number of derivative devices and ordered the South Korean company to pay $1.05 billion in damages.
