Apple Appeals Against Samsung Lawsuit Loss in Japan

Apple has officially filed for an appeal in one of its losses against Samsung in one of the many patent cases between the two technology giants

The firm has filed the necessary paperwork that it hopes will reverse a Tokyo judge's decision that smartphones and tablets belonging to Samsung not infringing on Apple's patents.

Apple had initially filed the aforementioned lawsuit during August, where it accused Samsung's Galaxy S and Galaxy S II smartphones, as well as the Galaxy Tablet 7 infringing on its patents pertaining to the synchronization of music and video to servers.

A few days before the lawsuit's decision was made, Apple had experienced its biggest ever victory against Samsung by being awarded $1.05 billion in damages, which jeopardizes the sale of several Samsung devices in the U.S. The latter, however, has requested for the trial to be dismissed due to the judge's personal history.

Samsung has also filed a lawsuit against the iPhone 5 following its release, while Apple were dealt legal blows when a sales ban against the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Nexus were both overturned.
