The patent wars seem never ending at this point, but there is good news for Samsung just before the launch of their Galaxy SIII around the world. In a patent dispute in Holland over European Patent EP1188269 which is an “apparatus for encoding a transport format combination indicator for a communications system,” Apple is said to have infringed upon Samsung. There is not likely to be any kind of ban on products at this point, but Apple may have to pay to keep things from getting ugly. The two companies are working towards a compensatory deal at the moment, we’ll have to wait and see how much the case was worth.
