Legal Lots of news about Apple vs. Samsung (and vice versa) in both the US and Europe today. In the US, judge Koh dealth two blows: one to Samsung (no retrial based on juror misconduct), the other to Apple (no permanent sales ban). In Europe, in the meantime, Samsung announced it will cease all lawsuits injunction requests against Apple... But only in Europe.

"The real reason, of course, is that Samsung's European cases against Apple weren't going all too well anyway - worse even than Apple's European cases against Samsung - so there's nothing to be gained from continuing them."

Huh... across many posts for many months, you've stated innumerable times that Apple was losing everywhere but in the U.S. Now it turns out that by "losing" you meant not losing as much as Samsung. Odd.

The real reason isn't the strength of their case. It's the threat of an EU antitrust decision. Otherwise, Samsung would be dropping injunction requests in other venues, particularly the US, besides Europe.

You do understand that losing 10-0 is worse than losing 2-0, right?

Right?

I know that if your opponent is losing more than you that is a net win.
