Apple seeking to ban Samsung devices from sale in the U.S.

Following an award of $119 million in damages from Samsung earlier this month, Apple is now seeking a permanent injunction against Samsung that would prevent the sale of any past and future Samsung devices that infringe upon its patents, notes FOSS Patents. In a motion filed late on Friday, the proposed injunction relates not only to products covered in the recent trial but also any “software or code capable of implementing any Infringing Feature, and/or any feature not more than colorably different thereform,” thereby extending to future Samsung devices. Based on the past history of such motions between both companies, it seems unlikely that such an injunction will be granted.
