Samsung appeals Galaxy Nexus ban, of course


In a completely expected move, Samsung today filed to appeal the preliminary Galaxy Nexus ban granted to Apple last week, moving to stay the injunction. Among other claims, Samsung is arguing that the ban is "inconsistent with the Federal Circuit's directive that market share losses must be substantial," and, as FOSS Patents puts it, "attributable to the 'infringing feature,' not just the presence of the infringing product on the market." This, of course, mirrors Samsung's appeal for the Galaxy Tab 10.1, which also had its US sales halted last week. The Federal Circuit could very well decide to stay, putting the devices back on store shelves, but until then, we imagine Sammy will be looking longingly at Posner's courtroom.
