Federal Circuit denies immediate stay of Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction, no Nexus decision yet

“Samsung appealed both of last week’s preliminary injunctions (the one against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the one against the Galaxy Nexus smartphone, which the Korean company co-developed with Google) to the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit,” Florian Mueller reports for FOSS Patents. “Simultaneously with notifying its appeals, Samsung asked Judge Lucy Koh of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California — the federal judge who had granted Apple those preliminary injunctions — to stay both injunctions pending appeal or, in the alternative, until the Federal Circuit decides on a stay. Judge Koh denied both motions to stay in their entirety (Galaxy Tab 10.1, Galaxy Nexus).”

“The appeals court’s Motions Panel simultaneously denied Samsung’s motion for an immediate stay of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 injunction without stating any reasons (presumably it was easy for the circuit judges to see that there isn’t much harm to Samsung since the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is nearing the end of its shelf-life),” Mueller reports. “No decision has been made (at the time of original publication of this blog post) on the request for an immediate stay of the Nexus injunction.”

    1. Finally what? This is nothing as there so many other Courts that can and will quash this. This Patent crap is foolish. Just build a better product and call it a day…. Kind of like ow televisions evolved.

      1. Tell that to Drug Companies! You get shot instantly !! LOL

        Who do you think pays for the millions of rollers of research and development costs, if you just want to be a joker to copy them with no effor put in. I think you are crazy !!’

  1. Boycott all Samsung consumer products. Patent problem solved. The courts can’t adjudicate these cases fast enough to keep pace with the changing technology anyway.

    Don’t reward an Asian company stealing American technology. And don’t reward Google, the American advertising company that repeatedly violates consumer’s privacy.
