PyroMosh writes: "Apple has been granted another injunction against Samsung, their second in a week. This new ruling comes down against the Samsung Nexus phones, the prior was against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. The patents in dispute involve "searching across multiple databases" and apparently voice search. Ridiculous patent fights have long ago become commonplace in this industry, but injunctions are fairly rare. How can a judge block sales of a product line over a patent that covers a concept that predates the product by decades?"
