The Hague District Court ruled today in favour of Samsung regarding a 3G patent asserted against Apple. The South-Korean giant filed the lawsuit back in October 2011, accusing Apple of infringing on four of its 3G patents. The court found Apple infringing one patent out of this four – EP 1188269. Samsung has already issued a press release ahead of the decision’s publication:
Samsung welcomes the decision of the court in The Hague, which again confirms that Apple makes free use of our technological innovations. In accordance with this statement, we recover adequate damages that Apple and its products have caused. For decades, Samsung has invested heavily as a pioneer in the development of technological innovations for the control of advanced devices, including innovations that are widely adopted by other manufacturers of mobile devices. We continue to defend our innovations and protecting our intellectual property rights for Apple to stop free use of our technology.
