Samsung has filed seven patent claims in Germany against Apple. One of the patents, covering turbo encoding and decoding device and a method for process frame data according to quality-of-service, was recently taken up in Regional Court. The judge ruled in favor of apple in the infringement complaint. The full detailed ruling is not yet available but an abstract is available in the link below. Samsung still has the option to appear in higher court. An impact on either company will most likely not be apparent until the written ruling comes available, according to Arora. The claims don’t go just one way, for apple has also filed claims against Samsung for infringing six patents.
