Apple loses to Samsung in Tokyo court

A Tokyo court ruled on Friday that Samsung Electronics’ mobile devices did not violate an Apple Inc patent, awarding the South Korean firm a victory a week after it lost a landmark patent case in the United States.

The Tokyo District Court’s ruling on an Apple patent dealing with transferring media content between devices comes after a U.S. federal jury found last week that Apple did not infringe on any of Samsung’s patents, while the South Korean firm had copied key features of the popular iPhone.

The U.S. jury awarded Apple $1.05 billion in damages and it is now seeking speedy bans on the sale of eight Samsung phones in the U.S. market.
