Samsung Galaxy Tab ‘does not copy Apple’s iPad designs’

Samsung did not copy Apple’s iPad designs in building its Galaxy Tab product, the court of appeal ruled on Thursday, reinforcing an earlier decision in which a judge said the Korean company’s designs were not as “cool”.Apple will also be obliged to publicise the fact the two designs are different – a ruling handed down in July – in newspapers, magazines, and on its website. The three appeal court judges upheld that ruling, saying its purpose was not to “punish [or] … make it grovel [but] to dispel commercial uncertainty.”To continue reading this report in The Guardian, go to:

Apple has lost its appeal against a UK ruling that Samsung had not infringed its design rights.A judge at the High Court in London had originally ruled in July that the look of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab computers was not too similar to designs registered in connection with the iPad.He said at the time that Samsung’s devices were not as “cool” because they lacked Apple’s “extreme simplicity”.Apple still needs to run ads saying Samsung had not infringed its rights.
