New twist in Samsung-Apple patent battle
- Samsung (SSNLF.PK) has appealed against an ITC ruling in June that prohibited the sale of certain Apple (AAPL) products in the U.S., as the commission found that the latter company only infringed one patent rather than the four that Samsung had claimed.
- At the weekend, the government vetoed the banning of the Apple products.
