The two 800 lbs gorillas, Apple and Samsung, are slugging it out in the courtroom where intellectual property is concerned – with both companies “trading blows” so to speak where lawsuits are concerned. Cupertino as seen an Australian court lift the ban over Samsung, and now they have received yet another blow as Apple has also lost their appeal for a Dutch ban, which means that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab line of tablets will still be able to be sold in the Netherlands.
It seems that the appeals court confirmed the lower court’s ruling, and Apple is denied – again. The nine month long legal battles fought out worldwide does not seem to end here, and we do wonder just how long it will go on. After all, this particular “tussle” has spread to more than 30 cases in 10 different jurisdictions. It is poetic justice for Samsung though, as the South Korean conglomerate themselves lost a bid to ban Apple’s products in the Netherlands, making this a draw – if you can call it so.
