APPLE'S REQUEST FOR BAN ON SAMSUNG PRODUCTS REJECTED: US Judge Lucy Koh has refused Apple's request for a ban on infringing Samsung products, Cnet has reported. The ruling stems from an August verdict that found Samsung guilty of infringing on Apple patents with a number of its tablets and smartphones, resulting in a $1.05bn judgment for Apple. Judge Koh found that Apple had not adequately demonstrated that it would suffer irreparable harm if 26 Samsung devices were not pulled from the market. Samsung is appealing the case, but Apple went ahead and asked that the court issue an injunction against the infringing products.
