Samsung’s Galaxy devices don’t infringe on an Apple multitouch patent that describes technology that prevents smartphone users from pushing two on-screen buttons at the same time, the Court of The Hague ruled on Wednesday. The technique used in Android is sufficiently different from Apple’s patent, the judge said.”The court judges that Samsung with the trading of its Galaxy products does not infringe on EP 948,” said judge Peter Blok and two other judges. “Apple, as the unsuccessful party, will be ordered to pay the litigation costs,” the judges wrote. Samsung’s costs already exceed A!325,247 (US$422,000).
