Apple Seeks Injunction Against 8 Samsung Phones

At the judge's request, Apple has produced a "tailored" list of 8 Samsung models on the sale of which it seems an injunction. Numerous Samsung Galaxy models are on the list, but not the most current ones.

In response to an order from Judge Lucy Koh, Apple has filed what it called a "tailored" list of Samsung products on the sale of which it seeks a court injunction.

There are 8 phones on the list, well short of the 28 products found by the jury to infringe Apple's intellectual property. Apple reserved the right to seek permanent injunctions against the remaining models at a later date.

The list contains many old models and none of the company's most recent, although those are the subject of other litigation.

The inclusion on the list may lead to emergency sales, such as this one from T-Mobile:

In similar ironic news, an AFP report on Apple's injunction list cites "...reports that US consumers were snapping up Samsung devices in anticipation of a possible ban."
