Apple News Byte: Samsung Wins Legal Victory Vs. Apple

Samsung won perhaps its most significant victory to date when it defended an import ban with the U.S. International Trade Commission against various Apple products. The agency granted the company a limited exclusion order against older iPhone and iPad models, including the iPhone 4 and iPad 2. In a ruling, Judge Grewal wrote that Apple's argument for including the Galaxy S4 in its lawsuit against Samsung was not persuasive enough, and provides Samsung with "undue prejudice" as it looks to defend itself against Apple's jabs. When Apple was engaged in long, protracted negotiations with record companies over terms for its iTunes Radio service, many assumed that the company was trying to get copyright owners to take less money per song play than competing Internet radio service Pandora. Reports now say that this is not the case, because Apple is paying out $0.13 per song play, or 1 cent more than what Pandora pays out.
