Samsung fought back with an appeal stating there is "legally insufficient evidence" that Apple would be irreparably harmed. Samsung also aksed Apple show any market losses that were substantial due to the infringing features.
A trial to decide if the Samsung Galaxy Nexus infringes upon the patents is scheduled for next year. Judge Lucy Koh believes that Apple will win this case and put forth the ban plan.
Previously, Apple tried to include the Samsung Galaxy S III in this lawsuit, however the judge warned that if were included in the suit, the legal process would take even longer.
The ban will not go into effect until Apple posts a $96 million bond in case Apple does not win the case. One of the patents is the "Siri" voice assistant.
The strange things about this whole patent mess is that Samsung supplies Apple with many of its components. The Samsung Galaxy S3 is the first big iPhone competitor noted many reviewers.
The main reason buyers would like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is that it is available to be updated to Android 4.1 Jellybean. Amazon Wireless is selling the Sprint and Verizon Nexus for one cent for new customers with a contract.
Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S III with a huge marketing campaign is selling like iPhones with shortages reported by AT&T Sprint and T-Mobile. It has many features that the current iPhone does not but the future iPhone 5 may have.
Whereas the court process is extremely slow it's hard to tell if Apple will be able to stop Samsung Galaxy S III sales.
Whatever happens millions of dollars are at stake, while consumers will have more features and confusion than ever before.
