Apple did not steal Samsung’s Technology – a Japanese court rejected Samsung’s claim that Apple stole its technology. Samsung had alleged that Apple’s iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, iPad 2 model infringed the patent.
According to a report (via The Times of India), a Japanese court rejected Samsung’s claim that Apple stole its technology. The technology in question relates to Wireless Internet (packet) communication technology that sends data efficiently.
Samsung had alleged that Apple’s iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4, iPad 2 model infringed the patent.
“The Tokyo District Court ruled that Samsung has no rights over data transmission technology used in some of Apple’s iPhone smartphones.”
This latest setback continues a long string of losses suffered by Samsung in their global patent fight against Apple. However, despite Apple many successes, Samsung’s mobility business continues to do very well. The company earned a net profit of 23.8 trillion won ($22.25 billion) on revenue of 201 trillion won ($187.9 billion) in 2012.
In the company’s fiscal Q4 2012, Samsung reported 56.06 trillion won ( $52.4 billion) in revenue, with 8.84 trillion won ($8.27 billion) in operating profit. This revenue is 18.52 percent larger than it was in Q4 2011, and with profit increasing 89.3 percent YoY.
In August last year, the Tokyo District Court had rejected Apple’s claim that Samsung stole its technology over synchronising a smartphone’s music data with that on a computer.
