Five Companies That Dropped The Ball This Week

Apple Stung By Court Reversal Of Samsung Nexus Sales Ban

A U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has reversed an earlier ruling that banned sales of Samsung's Nexus Android smartphone. The ruling is not part of the $1.05 billion patent infringement ruling Apple won in August, but according to a report from Reuters, it could make it difficult for vendors to seek sales injunctions of products in the future. So while this doesn't seem like a big deal for Apple, it could present issues for the company in its next patent battle.
