Japanese court: Apple did not infringe on two Samsung patents
Samsung and Apple are waging a legal battle in courts all over the world. Though the decisions in the US, UK and Germany garner most of the attention, other cases in other jurisdictions are also making their ways through their court systems. In Japan, two rulings favorable to Apple were handed down in September and October, according to a report from the Asahi Shimbun.
In these cases, the Tokyo court said Apple's Japanese unit did not infringe Samsung's patents and denied the Korean manufacturer's request to ban the iPhone in Japan. The two patents in the Japanese cases cover the downloading of an app to a smartphone and the use of airplane mode to turn off a phone's cellular and wireless radios when flying.
