UK Judge says Galaxy Tab’s design is “not as cool” as the iPad’s
A UK Judge ruled in favor of Samsung today claiming that the Galaxy Tab does not infringe on the iPad’s design. He bluntly states that “they are not as cool” as the iPad and “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design.” The iPad and the Galaxy Tab line are not hard to tell apart. Frankly I am shocked that Samsung’s lawyers were unable to pick out which was a Galaxy Tab and which was an iPad in court last year.
Samsung shot this reply back after winning the UK ruling – “should Apple continue to make excessive legal claims in other countries based on such generic designs, innovation in the industry could be harmed and consumer choice unduly limited.” I completely agree. Apple’s suing has been out of control for some time now.
