Samsung takes minor hit in German court ruling for Apple
Samsung's continued international patent war with Apple has resulted in both victories and losses for the smartphone giant who recently passed Apple in the third quarter as the world's top maker of smartphones. Today, one of the 13 patents in suit between Samsung and Apple in Germany was ruled in favor of Apple in the city of Mannheim. Samsung expressed dismay in its statement, "We are disappointed that the court did not share our views regarding the infringement by Apple of this specific patent in Germany." However, given that several more patents await ruling, the battle is not yet decided.
