Samsung Electronics Co. urged a judge to reject Apple Inc.'s escalation of "thermonuclear war" by denying the iPhone maker's request for a permanent U.S. sales ban on more than 25 Samsung products.

U.S. District Judge Lucy H. Koh in San Jose, California, yesterday heard arguments on the proposed ban that Apple seeks after a jury found in August that Samsung infringed six of its patents and awarded $1.05 billion in damages.

Koh, who said she will rule quickly, ended the hearing with the same entreaty she invoked before trial: "global peace"

Eastman Kodak Co. won a partial victory against Apple Inc. over patents, defeating Apple's ownership claims to two of 10 patents that Kodak plans to sell as part of its bankruptcy restructuring.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Allan Gropper in Manhattan ruled in favor of Kodak on the patents, saying the iPhone maker waited too long to assert its claims, according to a decision filed today.

Kodak sued Apple in June over the assets, accusing Apple of trying to disrupt the patent auction planned for next week. Kodak asked Gropper to rule in its favor in a pretrial decision known as summary judgment.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh has approved Apple's request for a preliminary injunction in the U.S. against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1.

"Although Samsung has a right to compete, it does not have a right to compete unfairly, by flooding the market with infringing products," Koh wrote on Tuesday.

Apple filed a motion for a preliminary injunction in May 2012, claiming Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 infringes on an iPad-related patent. Apple has also filed a similar motion against Samsung's Galaxy S III in June.

The judge's order becomes effective after Apple

Apple Inc. can renew its bid for a ban on U.S. sales of Samsung Electronics Co. (005930)'s Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer after an appeals court said it will let stand a May ruling on a patent dispute between the two device makers.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit today denied a petition by Samsung that it reconsider its ruling, which said that Apple could pursue the ban while a patent- infringement case is pending. Notice of the denial was posted on the court's website.
