Samsung lost case against Apple

Today Samsung lost a case against Apple. Samsung lost the patent battle about Apples patent of scrolling in the gallery (EP 2.059.868).
Samsung need to give all Android devices with Android 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 a update for the blue bounce effect in the gallery.
The court in the Netherlands decided this. Samsung started earlier with those updates, sadly not all devices are using this bounce effect yet.

Samsung need to make sure the update is done in 8 weeks if not Samsung could have to pay 100.000 euro a day!

Samsung Benelux, said in a statement to be “disappointed”: “Apple wants to restrict consumer choice and innovation discourage their excessive and incorrect legal claims… We take all possible measures to protect consumer choice in the Netherlands.”

The patent wars between Apple and Samsung are quite big in 2012, the biggest decision will come in December. Samsung lost a case in Apples home country, Samsung could pay Apple up to 1 billion dollar.

apple is american. ofcourse they win in court. usa thinks they owns the world. if for example apple had lost in court in some other country for example UK and APPLE had to pay samsung 1 billion. then usa would start to threat UK with bomb attacks.

Sorry for the spam lol. Im reading the verdict itself now. Some more interesting facts: – Apple lost the same patent case on this patent against HTC in the UK, however HTC’s galleries were deemed different than Samsung’s, so this verdict is not relevant. – The judge in germany suspended the trial, because it is expected the patent is going to be declared invalid – In products with Android 3.0, in a zoomed photo, you get a bounc back if you swipe a little. But if you make a bigger gesture, you scroll to the next picture in the gallery.… Read more »

Calm down, the title to this post is misleading. I’m Dutch, so i read the original article. Indeed, Samsung was found guilty of infringing on some scroll patents for bouncing back in the photo gallery. BUT… 1. Only phones with Android 2.2.1 to 3.0 are infringing and have to be updated 2. Samsung has already updated most phones. They have to finish the updating within 8 weeks. That’ll teach them to be slow on updates lol. If they fail on this, they will have to pay 100.000 euro per day. 3. Our justice system isn’t as ridiculous as in the… Read more »

There is always another way to do these kind of things, sammy and google just need to move further away from IOS quicker and in a more obvious way. Happily google and sammy are still inovating while apple have levelled off now due to JObs’s passing.

Maybe not….

Since it’s only 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, how about updating all phones to ICS?
LOL

Immagine Apple winning most law suits, wouldn’t we have to revamp the whole Android Jelly Bean design? The only way to beat Apple is at their own game and on their turf.
