Apple's bid for injunction against Samsung rejected

In the latest round of the remaining Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung (OTC:SSNLF, OTC:SSNGY) patent wars, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has denied Apple's bid for a permanent injunction prohibiting Samsung from selling infringing features on its smartphones that relate to three earlier patents.

Earlier this year, Apple won a $120M jury verdict against Samsung related to the patents and was hoping to extend the ruling.

Until recently, the two have been been embroiled in untold numbers of global patent lawsuits, but both dropped all claims on battles outside the U.S. earlier this month.

    Apple won $1B when Samsung was found guilty of infringing on Apple's patents. This ruling is a disappointment but in no way is it a "big fail".

    This is equivalent to catching a mugger, telling him "bad boy", letting him keep his gun, and dropping him back at the park again so he can put in his shift. Apple shareholders are the muggers victims and the judge has decided the mugger can keep the proceeds of his crime but needs to provide the victims with bus fare home.
