We all know about Apple's ongoing dispute with Samsung and and though it had been going on for quite a while now, Apple seems to get yet another advantage over its competitor. It has managed to win a key patent ruling again. This Tuesday was quite fortunate for Apple when Tokyo District Court Judge Koji Hasegawa ruled that the iPhone 4s, 4 and iPad 2 do not infringe the Samsung patents which are related to data communication.
The dispite started when Samsung claimed that Apple was violating its intellectual property and hence it was fair to give compensation to Samsung in form of a damages remedy. This ruling by the Tokyo judge is yet another victory which had been added to the long list of small scale victories which Apple had been granted throughout the dispute which has now lasted for a few years. Though there have been a lot of judgements, yet there was only one which proved to be helpful and of any consequence and this was a ruling in a San Jose court that could see Apple net hundreds of millions of dollars.
Courts around the world have instructed and encouraged both the companies to let go of their disputes and put an end to this controversy and though the two have met personally to sort out these issues, yet there has been no conclusion and the dispute carries on.
