    Samsung Loses Another Court Battle to Apple; This Time in the Netherlands

    There is now another country where Samsung had it's Galaxy devices banned. Apple just won a court victory against Samsung in the Netherlands. The courts there found that Samsung was infringing Apple's patent relating to the navigation interface in photo galleries. Here's a quote with more detail,

    Apple and Samsung have already been through this dance once before on the same exact patent issue last year. Samsung was accused of implementing the same “bounce back” feature as iOS when scrolling through images, so Samsung replaced it with a blue flash that would appear on the edges of images. However, Samsung has refused to “sign a declaration of abstinence committing to not infringing the patent,” but Samsung claims that the issue had been fixed in the Netherlands, and that its Galaxy products used Samsung’s own technology.

    The ban only applies to Galaxy products that run Android 2.2.1 and higher, and that don’t use Samsung’s proprietary photo gallery software. The court ordered Samsung to inform Apple how much net profit it made from sales of its infringing Galaxy products since June 27, 2011. From there, a different court will determine how much of that profit Samsung must give to Apple. If Samsung continues to infringe on Apple’s patent, the company will be required to pay Apple 100,000 euros ($129,000) for every day it violates the ban.
    We will keep you apprised as the story develops further.

    I swear.  People in power need to get a little up to date on technology and what exactly they are ruling on.  Its like asking my mom to decide on these patent lawsuits.  She doesn't know crap about tech and neither do these judges.

    whether they win or lose in court vs apple, samsung wins in public eye and sales. there is no such thing as bad publicity. the court case in usa propelled samsung sales through the roof even though they lost that one. now everyone who's not a techie thinks samsung = apple just at a lower price point.
