A Japanese court on Friday rejected Apple’s claim that South Korean rival Samsung stole the US firm’s technology for its own products.

The Tokyo District Court ruled that Samsung did not infringe on Apple’s patents on its iPhone and iPad computer for some of its Galaxy smartphones and tablet computer, one of a string of similar complaints filed across the globe.
