Samsung drops requests for Apple sales ban in Europe

Samsung will continue its case against Apple for patent infringement, but has dropped its request to have the sale of Apple products banned in Europe

Samsung has withdrawn its request for a sales ban on Apple products in Europe.

The South Korean manufacturer is still taking Apple to court over patent infringement, but it will no longer pursue an injunction banning the sale of its products, such as the iPhone, in Europe.

The announcement comes after a Californian judge ruled yesterday that no sales ban would be imposed on Samsung products, as Apple had failed to demonstrate lost iPhone sales were a result of Samsung’s patent infringement.

Samsung said today it “remains committed to licensing our technologies on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms, and we strongly believe it is better when companies compete fairly in the marketplace, rather than in court.

“In this spirit, Samsung has decided to withdraw our injunction requests against Apple on the basis of our standard essential patents pending in European courts, in the interest of protecting consumer choice.”
