According to recent data, judges rule Samsung did not infringe Nvidia graphics chip patent. The decision came after judges admitted that the third patent that Samsung allegedly copied was not an invention, after all.
- Judges’ ruling on the Samsung-Nvidia patent case
- Nvidia’s stand on the matter
- Samsung’s conclusions on ITC’s ruling
The United States worldwide Trade Commissions admitted on Friday that Samsung did not infringe Nvidia’s graphics chip patent, giving the GPU producer the mitten. Judges have reached this conclusion after establishing that the two patents under scrutiny had not been copied by the smartphone producer.
Nvidia will not let judges’ decision take them aback; they will continue to file patent suits against Samsung in an attempt to find a legal breach that will allow them to win the case. According to their legal experts, this could still be possible as the current decision was only related to two previous patents.
The graphics processing units producer has in fact stated that there is a third patent that will be put under scrutiny by legal authorities in the following period. Judged, on the other hand, have explained that the third patent could, indeed, prove Nvidia’s case, but its effects may not be as big as the Santa Clara, California-based company may want to.
According to legal experts, the third patent cannot account for Nvidia’s true invention as the chip already existed a long time ago. Consequently, Samsung can only be accused of “patent-trolling” if judges agree to rule in Nvidia’s case.
Samsung has declined to make any comments in relation to the new ruling. The company has been involved in many patent cases until now, including one with iPhone producer, Apple. The two companies had been fighting over smartphone and tablet technology.
Nvidia has asked the ITC to block Samsung’s smartphone and tablet shipments on the territory of the United States. They will continue to seek evidence in support of their case.
