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.

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.


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.

Eh, no. Not here. These suits and countersuits run alongside each other, and have little effect on each other. Apple winning a sales ban on the Galaxy SII has no bearing on the chances of Samsung winning a sales ban on the 4S, because they involve entirely different devices and patents.

Pretty basic stuff, but alas.
