WOW! Apple Provides Misleading Evidence to Court. Again

by: LucianAugust 19, 2011

This is unbelievable, and it’s really starting to get ridiculous. Apparently Apple was so satisfied with the result of the first injunction in Germany, where they manipulated the image of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 to make it the same size and give it a more 4:3 ratio, so they can “prove” that the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is “virtually identical” to the iPad, that they decided to do it once again at the Court in Netherlands, this time for the Galaxy S smartphone.

Webwereld reconstructed Apple evidence*

Apple provided the Court with this evidence while trying to show “an example of the similarity relevant to copyrights.” [...]

Apple’s Injunction Overturned for Most of Europe

by: LucianAugust 16, 2011

It seems that Samsung has already managed to lift the injunction on its Galaxy Tab 10.1 throughout Europe (except Germany), at least for now. One of the first things that I found odd with the German Court putting an injunction on the Galaxy Tab 10.1, is that they managed to do it throughout Europe. I wasn’t aware that the EU had such a law where one, almost random, Court (Germany doesn’t even have the presidency of EU right now) can put an injunction on companies that will cover the whole EU.

It looks like there may have been several procedural errors with this case, and besides the one about the misleading evidence Apple presented to the Court (whether [...]

Apple Injunction May be Overturned

by: LucianAugust 15, 2011

Last week I was saying how the German Court’s decision to grant Apple an injunction over Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1 makes little sense. Just because 2 products are somewhat similar “in the same product category” doesn’t mean one should be blocked out from the market. It’s how competition works in the real world. But it seems that even they may have been misled by Apple’s legal team.

Apple’s legal team presented the German Court with “evidence” that appears to be tampered with to make the Galaxy Tab 10.1 look as similar as possible to the iPad. Not only did the Tab get stretched out on the sides, but it was [...]

Samsung Hoping To Get Past Apple’s European Ban

by: Aerol BibatAugust 15, 2011

Samsung and Apple have been at each others’ throats over patents for awhile now. The latest casualty in the entire mess was the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The Regional Court of Düsseldorf recently decided that the tablet should be banned from being sold in EU countries, a solid hit at its marketing strategy.

However, Samsung isn’t calling it quits just yet. The Korean company is all set to appeal the ban at a hearing scheduled for August 25.

The big European ban is supposedly Apple’s knock-out punch for this round, but with Samsung not surrendering the European market just yet, it may still backfire on the company. This is because, according to German [...]

Behold Samsung’s “iPad” – Made in 2006

by: LucianAugust 13, 2011

This photo frame was launched by Samsung in 2006, and if you wouldn’t know better, you’d probably think it’s an iPad, or at least a tablet that strongly resembles it. But wait a minute. If this product came out in 2006 – does that mean it’s this product that looks like an iPad, or is it the iPad that looks like this product? Does that mean Apple copied Samsung’s innovation? Should Samsung ask for injunctions on iPads all over the world now because it has the same “look and feel” as their photo frame?

Granted, they are not in the same market. The iPad is a “tablet”, while this is a “photo frame”, [...]

Apple Gets Samsung to Halt Galaxy Tab 10.1 Sales in Australia, Rest of the World to Follow?

by: Darcy LaCouveeAugust 1, 2011

It looks like the fun soap opera between Apple and Samsung isn’t going to slow down any time soon, folks. Most unfortunate for Android fans in Australia, the latest iteration in the ongoing legal battle between Apple and Samsung has resulted in Samsung being told to halt sales and advertising of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 until the Korean company gets court approval that it may do so — or until the suit is resolved itself.

According to Bloomberg, due to differences between the US and Australian versions of the Android tablet, Samsung is required to present the device to Apple at least seven days before its planned launch. Apple is claiming that the US [...]

The real cost of Android: taxes and patent IP licenses

by: James TromansNovember 25, 2010

Android taxes for IP

Microsoft have consistently pointed out that Android is not free, nor open. Whether you agree on the latter point really depends on your definition. If it is a matter of degree, then Android is ‘more open’ then WP7 and, of course, iOS. That much is for sure. However, Android is not free to HTC, Samsung and the like. Here’s why.

Some of the key players making Android based mobile phones have crawled into bed with an intellectual properties company called Intellectual Ventures (IV). They pay IV a fee for access to its 30,000 or so registered patents. These patants allow companies using Android to defend [...]
