Apple accuses Samsung of violating court order in infringement case

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Apple has accused Samsung of violating a court order to produce its source code in a recent patent infringement case. The Cupertino-based company claims that the vendor has “only partially complied with” a judge’s order that required Samsung to hand over the source code for its 4G smartphones and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet, Bloomberg reported on Monday. According to a recent court filing, Apple claims that Samsung has only produced the source code for one version of each of the infringing devices and withheld all other versions. “At this point in the case, it is too late for Apple to make meaningful use of any late produced source code,” Apple said in the filing. The company claims that because of Samsung’s late submission, Apple has been left with “insufficient time for Apple’s experts to analyze any new code,” which are due in less than two weeks. Since April, Samsung and Apple have filed more than 30 lawsuits against one another in various countries around the world.

Kodak loses patent infringement case against Apple and RIM

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Remember how Kodak filed suit against Apple and RIM a year ago alleging patent infringement? Well, late yesterday, a U.S. International Trade Commission judge ruled that Kodak’s case — which related to low resolution previews of videos that are displayed on-screen while recording full resolution video — is invalid. Kodak had previously won claims against LG and Samsung, after which it was able to put a licensing deal in place worth a reported $864 million. Things might not turn out that well this time around, however. RIM has filed a federal suit challenging other Kodak patents and Apple is suing Kodak for patent infringement of its patents.
