German Court Tosses Pair of Apple, Samsung Suits

There are two fewer lawsuits in Apple’s patent battle with Samsung today, thanks to the decisive action of a German court.

Judge Andreas Voss of the Mannheim Regional Court this morning threw out two lawsuits in the case — one that Apple brought against Samsung, and another that Samsung brought against Apple. The former involved Apple’s claim that Samsung infringed on its slide-to-lock patent; the latter, Samsung’s claim that Apple has violated one of its 3G/UMTS-essential patents.

Samsung vowed to appeal the dismissal of its lawsuit against Apple, and noted that a separate case regarding four alleged patent infringements is still pending in Germany.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
