Another skirmish in the Patents War

In the latest round of the Patents War, a US judge has ruled that Samsung’s tablets infringe patents owned by Apple, but warned that Apple needs to prove the validity of those patents if it is to win an injunction preventing the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.

The decision is the latest in a dispute which involves 20 cases in 10 countries, some of which have resulted in Samsung having to remove products from the shelves.

Apple claims that the Galaxy range “slavishly” copies its iPad and iPhone and has sought to ban the sale of the Galaxy S 4G smart phone and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet in the US.

A similar ruling in an Australian court led to a temporary sales ban on the tablet in that country.
