Even after U.S. Court gave a decision not to put ban on products Samsung Electronics Co, Apple argued that the Court should re-think its decision to knock over the pretrial sales ban on Samsung breach.
A lower court in California ordered a ban on sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smart phone but the .S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit annulled the ban.
Apple argued that this was inappropriate and asked for an “en banc review,” which means more judged would come forward to look at the decision.
The patent over which the companies are fighting is the one which allows the smartphone to search multiple data storage locations at once. For example, the smartphone could search the device’s memory as well as the Internet with a single query.
Apple argued that the sales ban should be reinstated because it uses the patent in question and competes with Samsung.
The three-judge panel had said that consumers are not getting attracted towards Samsung phone because of patent and thus sales ban was unsuitable.
