Coming off a major U.S. copyright victory against the same rival just a week ago, Apple lost a case today in Japan when a Tokyo court ruled that Samsung‘s mobile devices did not infringe on an Apple patent involved in synching mobile devices and computers. In the U.S. case, a jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple $1.05 billion in damages. Reuters noted that Apple is now seeking bans on the sale of eight Samsung phones in the U.S. market. In Japan, though, Samsung said “We welcome the court’s decision, which confirmed our long-held position that our products do not infringe Apple’s intellectual property.” Bloomberg said that Apple and Samsung have litigated multiple patent disputes on four continents.
