Apple iPhone 4S Might Be Banned After All

Samsung and Apple have been smashing heads together for a while now and, after several victories for the latter, the former is gaining the upper hand.

Samsung may, in fact, succeed in proving that Apple's iPhone 4S infringes at least one of its 3G patents.

An account of the of the hearing, from Florian Mueller, reveals how two of Samsung's patents were deemed valid as motives to ban some of Apple's products, especially the iPhone 4S.

January 20 and January 27, 2012, are the dates when those two patents will be discussed again.

Until then, Apple will have to put everything it has into improving its own case, after failing to convince the judge to take into account 'narrowed' definitions of Samsung's patents.

That's about as intelligible as patent discussions can get. Go over to FOSS Patents if you want to read all the details.
