Apple won the most recent round in its ongoing patent dispute with Samsung as a German judge ruled in favor of Apple in a patent infringement complaint. Forbes reports that Mannheim Regional Court judge Andreas Voss ruled that Apple did not infringe on what is believed to be a Samsung patent relating to a “turbo channel encoding/decoding device for a CDM communication system”. Samsung has the option to appeal to the Higher Regional Court in Karlsruhe; according to the report, the ruling is only the first of Samsung’s seven patent claims against Apple in Germany.
