Dutch Court Denies Apple’s Bid to Ban Samsung Galaxy Tab

PCMag: An appeals court in The Hague, Netherlands, has upheld an earlier ruling that banned Dutch sales of Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones but not the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet. Apple had appealed the earlier ruling because it believes the Samsung tablet copies the design of the iPad.

“Samsung welcomes today’s ruling by the court in the Hague, which affirms the August 2011 ruling that the design of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is distinctive and does not infringe Apple’s intellectual property rights,” said a company spokesperson. “This ruling again demonstrates that Apple’s products simply do not warrant the intellectual property protections that it believes.” He added, “Samsung will continue to take all appropriate measures, including legal action, to ensure continued consumer access to our innovative products.”

The two companies have similar patent cases pending in many other countries.
