Apple gets partial win on appeal in Samsung patent case

"This is a victory for design and those who respect it," Apple said in a statement on Monday. The long-running dispute with Samsung dates back to when former Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs was still alive and was seen as emblematic of his tendency to fiercely defend the company's proprietary designs and technology from copies. Although the opinion was mixed, it tilts strongly in Apple’s favor, upholding the bulk of its damages award and reinforcing the principles of design that the company sued to advance, said Brian Love, an assistant professor of law at the University of Santa Clara.

Apple Inc, maker of iPhone smartphones, was not affected by the ruling by the Mexican Institute for Industrial Property (IMPI) against America Movil, Telefonica and Iusacell for advertising mobile phone subscriber plans with the name "iPhone" in the title. "It's because a brand registered for products was being used for services," said a spokesman for the IMPI, which is part of Mexico's Economy Ministry.
