Apple Attempts to Ban Certain Samsung Phones in US

Last week, the jury in the Apple vs. Samsung case decided that Samsung did in fact infringe on several Apple patents and that, all totaled, Samsung owes Apple just over a billion dollars. With that decision in the can and a new week upon us, Apple is now moving forward in its attempt to ban certain Samsung products from sale in the US. Apple is only going after eight phones, despite the jury deciding that many more phones infringed on patents; a good portion of those phones are no longer available in the US.

According to the notice that Apple filed with the court, the company is looking to have the following Samsung phones banned from sale in the US: Galaxy S 4G, Galaxy S2 (AT&T), Galaxy S2 (Skyrocket), Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile), Galaxy S2 Epic 4G, Galaxy S Showcase, Droid Charge, and the Galaxy Previal. The notice also lays out Apple’s various patents and which patents each phone was found to infringe upon.

While the Galaxy S2 series still sells fairly well, I don’t know if this is as big of a blow to Samsung as some may have thought was coming. It certainly isn’t a good thing for Samsung, but I don’t think banning these particular phones is going to hurt the company very much.
