Samsung won a ruling in a U.K. courtroom today in one of its many cases against Apple. Judge Colin Birss ruled in London that consumers are not likely to mix up Galaxy tablets with the iPad. In the ruling, Birss indicates the Samsung products “do not have the same understated and extreme simplicity” of the Apple products.
Would you be surprised if I said Apple is trying to sue Samsung over their Galaxy Note 10.1? No? Didn’t think so. Apple told a judge in California that Samsung infringes patents on the Samsung Note 10.1, and even wanted to add Android 4.1 into that lawsuit.
With a court in the US having ordered Samsung to let Apple see its designs for future smartphones and tablets, Samsung has decided that two can play at that game, and is asking for the same privileges.
Samsung’s music streaming service, Milk Music, was previously only available to Samsung smartphones. Today, Samsung is expanding the availability of the service by offering it to a handful of Samsung tablets, including the TabPRO line, the NotePRO 12.2, and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition.
Apple has WON BIG in the Apple/Samsung IP lawsuit. The judge basically gave everything Apple wanted. Samsung was found to be infringing several of Apple's patents and designs. In addition, Samsung now has to pay Apple over $1 Billion. Samsung lost completely. Apple was found to be infringing ZERO ZERO ZERO patents of Samsung which is quite surprising.
Apple Inc. (AAPL) was ordered by a judge to publish a notice on its U.K. website and in British newspapers alerting people to a ruling that Samsung Electronics Co. didnt copy designs for the iPad.
The notice should outline the July 9 London court decision that Samsungs Galaxy tablets dont infringe Apples registered designs, Judge Colin Birss said today.
