In the latest episode of Samsung-Apple saga, Samsung has failed to ban iPhone 4S in France suffering the same fate the Korean giant had witnessed before in other countries. Samsung had filed for injuction against Apple claiming that iPhone 4s infringed wireless patents.
Describing Samsung’s plea for an injunction as a “disproportionate” measure, the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris ruled Samsung must reimburse Apple $134,100 for its legal fees. But it also denied Apple’s request for damages and said Samsung’s infringement lawsuit against its rival can move forward.
Despite taking blows again and again, Samsung is determined that it will get justice one day seeking to hamper Apple’s most popular iPhone 4S smartphone. For the time being, it’s Apple who have been successful in imposing bans on the Korean giant till now.
However, Samsung will have another chance to go after Apple next week in Italy, as a Milan court will hold hearing to review Samsung’s plea to ban iPhone 4S in the country.
