Apple Seeks Injunction Hearing to Ban Some Samsung Products Over Alleged Patent Infringementq

Touch the zoom, among other features


After more than two years since Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) was denied a request to ban sales of Samsung(KRX:005935) products in the United States, the Cupertino-based tech giant renewed motion on Thursday, seeking another injunction hearing in January.

Last month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit revived Apple's bid for a permanent patent injunction against Samsung's devices regarding three multitouch software patents—rubber-banding, tap-to-zoom-and-navigate and pinch-to-zoom API—that were claimed to be violated by the South Korean tech behemoth. And now, according to a post on Foss Patents, the iPhone-maker has renewed its bid for a U.S. ban on certain Samsung products, requesting that another injunction hearing be held on Jan. 30, 2014.
