In the case of Apple against Samsung, ITC said that Samsung products are infringed on two Apple patents i.e. headset plug detection and touchscreen multi-touch. The court now ruled Samsung not to marketing the infringed products on the Apple patents.

In 2011, Apple filed a case against Samsung in patent infringement in which: Samsung’s Galaxy devices are very similar to Apple’s design. Apple and Samsung were suing some ongoing cases across the countries. Earlier, While Samsung won its cases in South Korea, Japan and UK, Apple won the case in US.

Apple has filed its claim 2nd time on Aug 2012, stating more of the Samsung products violate Apple patents including Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note and Galaxy Tab 10.1. Finally Apple won its battle against Samsung after a waste of time.

Beside all this, Samsung may release software updates -for example user will use the technology the same way but Samsung may change “how to use”.
