Google says Apple-Samsung patent ruling must 'not limit' users' access to Android devices
London, Aug 28 (ANI): Responding to Apple's landmark legal victory over Samsung, Internet search giant Google has that it does not want the ruling in the patent lawsuit to 'limit' consumers' access to Android devices.
"The mobile industry is moving fast and all players - including newcomers - are building upon ideas that have been around for decades," the firm said in a statement.
"We continue to work with our partners to give consumers innovative and affordable products, and we don't want anything to limit that," it added.
According to the BBC, Google also said that most of the claims "don't relate to the core Android" software used in mobile devices.
"The court of appeals will review both infringement and the validity of the patent claims," Google said.
"Most of these don't relate to the core Android operating system, and several are being re-examined by the US Patent Office," it added.
Google allows mobile-phone manufacturers to weave its Android operating system into their handsets.
The firm suffered a setback last week, when a jury said Samsung, the biggest user of Android, infringed Apple patents.
The U.S. jury ordered Samsung to pay Apple over one billion dollars on Friday for infringing several of the iPhone maker's software and design innovations. (ANI)
