Submission + - Apple v. Samsung: Appeal blocks lifting of Galaxy Tab ban (arstechnica.com)

tlhIngan writes: "Oops. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 was found to be non-infringing in the recent Apple v. Samsung case, and as such, the ban on its sale should be lifted. However, because Samsung has appealed the ruling Judge Koh cannot lift the injunction, even though she wants to. Because the appeal is before a different court, her court no longer has jurisdiction to lift the injunction and thus cannot lift it until jurisdiction has been returned back. Note that is applies to the old Galaxy Tab — Samsung has since released a new model that is not covered by the injunction."

Submission + - Apple and Samsung agree to settlement talks (fosspatents.com)

tlhIngan writes: It looks like the Apple v. Samsung war might be over soon. Both parties have agreed to meet to attempt to reach a settlement. While they are not required to settle (Google and Oracle recently went through the same process), it could be a positive signal that Apple might be willing to license the patents under Tim Cook, versus fight it out in court under the late Steve Jobs.

I like work; it fascinates me; I can sit and look at it for hours.
