Apple Moves Quickly To Have Infringing Samsung Devices Banned From Sale In The U.S.
Can’t say we didn’t see this coming. Fresh off of their U.S. victory, Apple has filed to have eight (out of 28) of Samsung’s infringing devices banned from sales in the US. The recent victory surely tips the scales in favor of Apple, but that still doesn’t mean an automatic injunction. Apple will have to prove that these eight devices will cause irreparable harm to their products if not banned (something I highly doubt is true).
The eight devices Apple has listed include the:
- Galaxy S 4G
- Galaxy S2 AT&T
- Galaxy S2 Skyrocket
- Galaxy S2 T-Mobile
- Galaxy S2 Epic 4G
- Galaxy S Showcase
- Droid Charge
- Galaxy Prevail
You’re not going to find too many people who would be saddened to see these devices removed from shelves — especially with the Samsung Galaxy S III being available on all carriers — so we’re pretty sure Apple is simply doing this out of spite — since we already known their 1.5 billion judgement was more than enough in damages.
Regardless, if you were hoping to purchase any of the above mentioned devices, you might want to go out and do that while you still can.
