[US Court issues sales ban against Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus ] 기사의 본문 이미지

The US District Court in San Jose, California banned the sales of Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy Nexus smartphone only days after it barred the sales of Samsung’s touch screen tablet Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The US District Court of Northern California sided with US smartphone maker Apple in a ruling issued June 29 (local time) in which it granted a preliminary sales injunction against Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, reported Bloomberg and other foreign media sources Sunday. This ruling gave Apple its second victory in less than a week, as it won a sales ban against Galaxy Tab 10.1 earlier on June 26.

Apple has successfully blocked the launch of Samsung’s flagship models in its home ground market, and may now turn its focus to Galaxy S III, Samsung’s latest smartphone release, predict market experts.

Furthermore, Apple’s patent war may expand to include Google, a US-based tech giant that is collaborating with Samsung for many of the Korean maker’s Android phones.

Apple had requested a preliminary injunction against Galaxy Nexus, the reference phone made jointly by Samsung Electronics and Google, in February claiming the product violated four of its patented technology. Namely, Apple argues that Samsung has infringed on its unified search feature used for Apple’s computerized personal assistant Siri; the data tapping function that allows users to make phone calls by tapping numbers embedded in email, SMS, web pages, or documents; the swipe to unlock function; and its word recommendation feature for touchscreen typing. The court sided with Apple regarding the search engine feature, while echoing Apple’s suspicion in regards to the other claims.

“Although Samsung will necessarily be harmed by being forced to withdraw its product from the market before the merits can be determined after a full trial, the harm faced by Apple absent an injunction is greater. Apple’s interest in enforcing its patent rights is particularly strong because it has presented a strong case on the merits,” said US District Judge Lucy Koh in the ruling.

“Galaxy Nexus is a collaboration project between Samsung and Google. As such, we will respond by joining forces with Google,” said a Samsung spokesperson. “We will seek any and all legal recourse to make sure there is no glitch in our ability to deliver the products to the market.”

Samsung is believed to immediately file a motion to suspend the ruling and submit documents to appeal the decision.

美법원 결정, 갤럭시 넥서스도 美서 판매금지
삼성 "구글과 공동대응 할것"

미국 법원이 삼성 태블릿PC인 `갤럭시탭 10.1`에 이어 전략 스마트폰인 `갤럭시 넥서스`에 대해서도 판매 금지 결정을 내렸다.

1일 블룸버그 등 주요 외신에 따르면 미국 캘리포니아 북부지방법원(새너제이)은 지난달 29일(현지시간) 갤럭시 넥서스가 자사 특허를 침해했다며 애플이 제기한 판매 금지 가처분신청을 받아들였다.

지난달 26일 갤럭시탭 10.1에 대해 판매 금지 명령을 내린 지 일주일도 채 안 된 상황이다. 안방인 미국에서 삼성전자 플래그십(전략) 모델 발목을 잡는 데 성공한 애플은 공격의 칼끝을 `갤럭시 S3`에 겨눌 가능성이 높아 귀추가 주목된다...
