The Dutch courts also give reason to Samsung

Apple is taking sticks in court in its fight against Samsung. After a victory at trial in the U.S., Apple has already been convicted in the UK report that Samsung did not copy their products and now it seems that a judge in the Netherlands has reached the same conclusion: Samsung has copied the iPad design their tablets.

Apparently, the Dutch court, after a thorough examination of claims Apple has determined that the tablets do not infringe Samsung Galaxy design iPad. Furthermore, the decision rests on the decision of the British court.

The Samsung tablets do not infringe patents of Apple iPad design

After the verdict, Samsung has been quick to publish a statement:

"We creyyendo that Apple was not the first to design a tablet with a rectangular shape and rounded corners and registered design features of Apples and can be found in many examples."

For its part, Apple has refused to make any statement on the matter, at least not yet.

In 2012, Apple scored 1135 patent and was ranked number 21 of all companies in the world that more patents registered. In 2011, the company was ranked 39 with 676. For its part, Samsung recorded a 5081 patent in 2012, a figure so high that allowed positioned at number two.

With these number of patents, it seems logical that companies occasionally violate any of them, on occasion even be a mere accident, as registration is easy with both an engineer or designer working on a new product does not know if another company came to do the same before you try.

Anyway, we would see that all technology companies can live in peace and do not need powerful struggle and focus exclusively to market more and better products. Products that manage to dazzle users, that after all be your future customers.

Whichever way you look, the design of a rectangle with rounded corners should not be patentable Do not you think?
