On Monday, January 18, the United States District Court in San Jose, California ruled in favor of Cupertino-based multinational technology company Apple Inc. in its battle with South Korean multinational conglomerate Samsung Electronics Co.
Samsung was ordered to stop the manufacture, use, sales, development, or design of software or code that allows its products – such as older Samsung models like the Galaxy S II, the Galaxy S III, and the Note smartphones – to infringe on three of Apple’s patents which cover mobile phone features such as slide-to-unlock, autocorrect, and data detection features, the court said.
Over the years, the two mobile phone giants have lodging a number of lawsuits against one another until, in 2014, they finally decided to drop all of the cases against each other save for two that were filed in the federal court in California – one of which yielded the latest resolution.
