Keen on fighting over the various “legal battles” around the world Samsung and Apple – with the current lawsuit, a Dutch court rejected the South-Korean giant pleads stating its 3G patent bid to ban the sales of Apple’s iPhone and iPad in the Netherlands. The court ruled out that Samsung cannot assert 3G patents against Apple products which are using Qualcomm’s chips. The Dutch ruling comes as Apple returned to Samsung for the initial supply of touch-screen panels to make its latest iPad, which was unveiled last week and will hit the stores on Friday.
According to Samsung, court had ruled that the company could seek damages over the use of Intel chips. “(The) ruling by the Hague court provides Samsung with a legal basis to move forward with the protection of our patent rights,” the South Korean firm said in a statement. “Samsung has and will continue to stand ready to meet its obligations in licensing its technology on fair and reasonable terms.”
