    “When companies have contributed their patents to an industry standard and have made a commitment to license the patents in return for fair remuneration, then the use of injunctions against willing licensees can be anti-competitive,” EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said in a statement.

    As mentioned dozens of times before, the reason Samsung was seeking an injunction was because Apple was not in the category of "willing licensees". Apple first argued that the patents were not used, then that they would only pay pennies for it, even though their entire ecosystem depends on it. And in the mean time Apple offered their patents in exchange for $40 per device AND free access to the 3g licenses. Hardly willing there, and given their reluctance to make their patents available to anyone (at least those ones), the 3g licenses must be worth quite a bit.

    Looks like Samsung was a little too hell-bent on revenge for the sake of revenge instead of looking up the actual laws. Ouch!

    You do realize that the laws say nothing about it, and only the commission said something? The laws actually specifically allow injunctions in the case of a party unwilling to license, which Apple clearly was by giving Samsung counter offers that were downright rude.
