Galaxy Tab 7.7 -Apple vs. Samsung : And the Hits just keep on coming…
What's better than being a Tablet Manufacturer? Yup, you guessed it – be a patent lawyer for a Tablet manufacturer -you'll be making a mint if you work for Apple or Samsung. Once again the battle of the two Tablet manufacturers goes around…and around.
The latest ruling in Germany comes with an interesting twist. Just last week a UK judge ruled in favor of Samsung and said it was not an obvious copy of the iPad. But, as this was an EU related ruling, where does that leave the UK ruling?
Is it a rock or a croc? Umm, no, it's an Apple lawyer – he forgot to wear sunscreen...
"Apple has won an EU-wide preliminary injunction against Samsung's Galaxy Tab 7.7 tablet, after a German court decided the device infringes on Apple's design rights.
The ruling came down from the Düsseldorf regional court on Tuesday morning, according to the Dutch site Webwereld. However, the court also upheld an earlier decision stating that the Galaxy Tab 10.1N — itself a revised model that Samsung created to work around design infringements — did not copy Apple's designs.ZDNet"
You know that at the end of the day, when all this dullsville legal stuff settles down, Samsung and Apple will kiss and make up. The lawyers will walk away with their newly acquired Ferrari's and wait for a call from Apple or Samsung to say someone is copying their patented device….that'll take care of the Villa in Southern France…ching ching…zzzzzz
