The patent dispute between Apple and Samsung has turned in the iPhone-maker’s favor over the past couple of weeks. After the Cupertino-based company successfully halted sales of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Nexus, FOSS Patents reports that Apple began to take aim at retailers selling Samsung’s products. According to the South Korean manufacturer, several retailers in late June and early July received letters that ordered them to cease all sales of the two infringing devices. “Apple’s menacing letters greatly overreach, incorrectly claiming that third-party retailers are subject to the prohibitions of the preliminary injunction, which they clearly are not,” Samsung said in a court filing. “They are permitted to sell their existing inventory, even without a stay.” Judge Lucy Koh’s order, however, notes that the injunction includes Samsung’s employees, agents and “those acting in concert with any of them.” According to The Verge, Sam’s Club still has the tablet in stock, and the company is “still looking at the court’s order and evaluating if and how it may impact us.”
