Apple avoids patent infringement in Germany
One down, six more to go.
Apple has successfully seen out a patent lawsuit from Samsung in Germany’s Mannheim Regional Court. This particular case surrounded the Samsung patent of the 3G / UMTS standard. Judge Andreas Voss rejected Samsung’s claim, but did not give a reason for doing so. It is speculated that it was determined that Apple wasn't infringing upon Samsung's patent or that Samsung has simply exhausted its IP rights. This is one of seven patents that Apple has been accused of infringing.

Samsung is unhappy with the ruling, but is yet to decide whether to appeal the decision. A statement from Samsung expressed disappointment, but also noted that “today's ruling relates to only one of several patents asserted by Samsung in the Mannheim court. We're still awaiting official documentation, and will update this post as soon as we hear more.” Apple isn’t in the clear in Germany just yet from the sounds of it.
