Apple Asks That Eight Samsung Smartphones Be Banned in the U.S.

by Reads (3,926)

Shortly after a jury decided that some of Samsung’s smartphones infringe on patents held by Apple, the judge on the case asked Apple to list the products it wants to be banned in the U.S. Apple has submitted its list.

Apple vs. SamungThe phones are:

  • Samsung Galaxy S II (AT&T and T-Mobile)
  • Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket (AT&T)
  • Samsung Droid Charge (Verizon)
  • Samsung Epic 4G (Sprint)
  • Samsung Galaxy S 4G (T-Mobile)
  • Samsung Galaxy S Showcase (C Spire)
  • Samsung Galaxy Prevail (Boost Mobile)

Apple is asking for an immediate, preliminary injunction that would stop companies from selling these devices. This is the beginning of the process that could see these permanently banned.

Considering the jury in the Apple vs. Samsung patent-infringement lawsuit ruled almost entirely in Apple’s favor, the judge is likely to issue the preliminary bans the company has requested.

The only bright spot in this for Samsung is that its recently-released flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III, is too new to have been part of the trial.
