The rivalry between the Apple and Samsung had led to an injunction on the Samsung's Galaxy Nexus, which was reversed later by an appeals court. Apple had then asked the court to reconsider, but the case is now over as Apple's request has been demised.

The US court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, motivated its decision from today with the fact that all the nine judges of the Appeals Court reconsidered the sales ban.

The conflict was based on Apple's 604 patent, which was initially infringed by the Galaxy Nexus. The violation was by the unified search, which was implemented on the Galaxy Nexus and to justify its request, Apple had to demonstrate that the consumer demand was directly tied with the infringing functionality. Apple's task was cut out as it was a real ask given the features on the smartphones.

Apple can appeal to the Supreme Court, but it is very likely that the request would be dismissed again.
