UK Court Awards Samsung Win In Design Suit
Apple cannot understand whether it should feel happy about the fact that iPad is “more cool” than Galaxy Tab, or should it feel bad that lost a lawsuit against Samsung.
A judge in the UK awarded a win to Samsung in an intellectual property dispute. The judge called the Galaxy Tab “not as cool” as the iPad, and therefore, the ruling from the court said that Galaxy Tab could not be confused with Apple’s tablets.
Adding insult to lawsuit win, Judge Colin Birss said that Samsung’s tablets “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity which is possessed by the Apple design.”
According to Birss, the Galaxy Tabs were distinct from the iPad given their thinner form factors and the “details” on the backs of the devices.
If Apple’s not satisfied with his ruling, it has 21 days to appeal.
