Finally! Japan Finds Samsung Guilty of abusing the FRAND Process

It's being reported on today that Apple successfully defended itself against the assertion of a standard-essential patent by Samsung in Japan. On a global scale this was Samsung's 22nd SEP assertion to have been dismissed, dropped or stayed. It was the first pro-FRAND ruling by an Asian court that I've ever heard of. And now that Apple has filed a redacted translation of the relevant passages of the Tokyo District Court's ruling, it turns out that it's also the first time in the Apple-Samsung dispute for Samsung to have been found to have abused the standard-setting process through untimely disclosures.
