A federal judge has denied Samsung’s request to lift a band on U.S sales of its Galaxy Nexus smartphone. District Judge Lucy Koh, granted Apple’s request for the preliminary injunction, said there was insufficient evidence to stay the injunction for the duration of a Samsung appeal.

Saying : “Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly by flooding the market with infringing products”.


Samsung’s appeal, which was filed Sunday with the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit — a court that specializes in intellectual property disputes — argued that there was insufficient evidence that Apple and Samsung were competitors.

Samsung said it was disappointed in Koh’s ruling but would continue to appeal the injunction.

“We believe today’s ruling will ultimately reduce the availability of superior products to consumers in the United States,” a Samsung spokesperson told CNET. “Meanwhile, we are also working closely with Google to resolve this matter, as the patent in question concerns Google’s unified search function.”
