Upholding the sales ban implies that each devices area unit still impermissible from commerce despite the charm. but each smartphones area unit currently 3 years recent thus this is not possible to end in a significant money blow to Samsung in Europe.
Samsung has recently suffered another blow, being ordered to pay Apple $119.6 million in damages attributable to infringing on 2 patents. The legal feud is unlikely to stop presently.
Google created sensible with Apple recently and each corporations in agreement to dismiss all in progress lawsuits, that several took as a signal of a significant halt.
