Apple wins UK essential patent claim against Samsung

A London judge invalidated three Samsung patents involving the transmission of data over third-generation mobile networks

Apple Inc. has won the latest installment in its epic patent war against Samsung Electronics Co., after a U.K. judge ruled on Thursday that the California-based company did not infringe three Samsung patents on mobile technology.

At trial last year, Samsung contended that Apple had infringed three of its patents involving the transmission of data over third-generation mobile networks. London-based Judge Christopher Floyd, however, found that Samsung should never have been granted the patents in the first place, since their use existed in prior art.
