Apple can seek Samsung product ban again

A federal appeals court made a decision on Monday that will give Apple another chance to seek sales bans of certain Samsung devices, the Wall Street Journal reports. The appeals court ruled unanimously that Judge Lucy Koh “made errors” when denying Apple’s request to ban 26 Samsung products from sale in the U.S. last year. The WSJ reports Koh “should spend more time considering evidence” presented by Apple, as requested by the court. Apple and Samsung are currently facing off again in court for a retrial based on Samsung’s infringement of iPhone patents, as the companies battle over damages.

The really silly part of all of this is that both companies make billions working with each other. One of Jobs goals was to cut Apple off from Samsung, the biggest semi-conductor in the world, because he was just that cranky of an old man…

Now they’re back using Samsung components because, surprise, surprise, you can’t be the single biggest vendor of things made from semiconductors and not do business with the biggest supplier of semiconductors. It’s elementary logic.

And, still, somehow, both companies continue with these infantile suits back and forth to try and gain any competitive advantage on the backs of the tax payers funding them fighting out how many angels can dance on the head of a pin for all intents and purposes. Drives me nuts.
