German court sides with Samsung, Motorola in Apple’s “touch event” patent case
Ludicrous as Apple's claim to patents as generic as rounded corners may be, it does seem that not all courts of law are convinced that Apple owns everything. A German court has recently ruled in favor of Samsung and Motorola in Apple's patent infringement lawsuit on the "touch event model."

It’s been a tough time lately for Samsung in the ongoing legal war against Apple, with the Android phone maker losing patent battle after battle.

Apple vs Samsung trial: iPhone maker to ask for $3 billion in damages or triple the jury’s findings
In late August Samsung suffered a crushing defeat in its first U.S. trial against Apple.
