Samsung fails to ban Apple iPhone in Japan
London: South Korean mobile maker Samsung has lost the legal battle to secure an iPhone ban in Japan.

Samsung had claimed Apple had infringed the rights to one of its 3G technologies.

The Japanese case dates back to 2011 when Samsung filed a claim that Apple had use one of its data transmission techniques without paying a licence fee, the BBC reports.

Apple had counterclaimed that Samsung had no right to the technology and therefore did not deserve a fee.

According to the report, had Apple lost it could potentially have been banned from selling some of its older handsets in Japan.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that Samsung has hired a judge who favored the Korean mobile maker in a recent court case against rival Apple.

U.K. Judge Robin Jacob served on the bench last year in a case that forced Apple to publish an apology notice asserting that Samsung did not infringe on the design of the iPad for its own tablet.

According to a letter to the court from Samsung obtained by Foss Patents, Jacob has been hired by Samsung as one of the nine legal experts for the case.
