Apple Sues Again After Losing to Samsung in Tokyo Patent Trial

A California court, meanwhile, ruled for Apple last week


These foreigners can be ever so insubordinate. Samsung has just won a patent case against Apple in Japan… 

When South Korean courts ruled on a slightly different matter, both Samsung and Apple were found in breach of each others' patents. Japan sides with Samsung here, Australia and the UK largely with Samsung. Why there are even some who mutter that the US case so recently decided was influenced by a home court advantage. It could be that the general outcome of all these cases is a fragmentation of the global marketplace: with all the losses through inefficiency that would bring.
