The battle between Samsung and Apple doesn't look like it's going to be ending anytime soon as Apple has appealed a ruling out of Tokyo that said Samsung didn't violate one of Apple's patents. Considering the legal fights between the two companies have been going on for over a year, there won't likely be an end to the suits anytime soon.

Apple Inc. (AAPL) appealed a Tokyo ruling that said Samsung Electronics Co. didnít infringe on the iPhone makerís patent as the worldís top two smartphone sellers continue their global legal dispute.

Apple appealed an Aug. 31 ruling by Tokyo District Court that said Samsung didnít violate Appleís invention of technology for synchronizing music and video data with servers, a court spokesman Yutaka Sakai said by phone today. Cupertino, California-based Apple was ordered by Tokyo District Judge Tamotsu Shoji at the time to pay costs of the lawsuit.
