Submission + - Samsung drops European injunction requests against Apple (itworld.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Samsung dropped all claims pending in European courts in which it asserted patents that are essential for mobile communication devices to prevent the sales of Apple products in Europe.

The injunction requests against Apple, which aimed to get courts to impose sales bans on infringing products, were withdrawn in the U.K., France, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy.

Samsung only withdrew the injunctions requests — other litigation against Apple in Europe continues, Anne ter Braak, a spokeswoman for Samsung in the Netherlands, said in an email on Tuesday.

While Samsung said it withdrew its claims in the interest of protecting consumer choice, it could have to do with a European antitrust investigation.
