Samsung loses in UK in standards-essential patent claim against Apple

21 03 2013

A UK court has handed Apple another win against Samsung regarding standards-essential patents. Judge Christopher Floyd ruled on Wednesday that Apple’s mobile products do not infringe on Samsung’s patents on 3G wireless networking, likely dashing Samsung’s hopes of receiving royalties on such patents in the EU.

The decision is just one of many that have occurred around the globe between Apple and Samsung. And Samsung’s attempts to assert patents that are considered “essential” to 3G standards have been controversial. Last year, the European Commission said it had begun investigating Samsung for trying to use its patents against competitors—which it agreed to license on fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) terms.
