Bloomberg reports that Apple has once again been denied a sales ban request on Samsung products that were already found to infringe its patents back in May.
Apple Inc. (AAPL) failed again to win a sales ban on Samsung Electronics Co. (005930)products found to infringe its smartphone patents, even after requesting what it described as a more limited prohibition.
According to the report, Apple had narrowed its request to focus on only certain smartphone models, but Koh still denied the sales ban despite Apple offering Samsung a period of time to implement workarounds for the infringing features: Apple tried to make its request more viable by targeting specific infringing features in nine Samsung devices, and by offering what it called a “sunset period” to give its Suwon, South Korea-based rival a chance to design around the features before any ban was enforced, according to a court filing.
Today’s report from Bloomberg didn’t provide any additional details on the court’s decision.
Apple and Samsung haven’t yet responded to requests for comment.
