It seems Apple had a major victory over Google and Samsung last week regarding a patent violation. Apple won an injuction to keep the galaxy nexus off the shelves in the US. Apple's patent of Siri covers a feature called unified search which allows phones to search through the phone and the internet in the same bar. Because the US allows Apple to have patents of software and Apple does not license patents out to other companies the court has decided that the Galaxy Nesus cannot be sold in the US. Google has promised a work around to the patent in the next update of Jelly Bean. This countinues an on going battle between Samsung and Apple with both companies suing each other in multiple countries around the world.
