Legal The hearing regarding the preliminary injunction in the German Apple v. Samsung case is currently under way. Biggest revelation so far? Samsung is accusing Apple of 27 (!) cases of altering pictures, all done to make Samsung's products appear more similar to Apple's than they really are. Like last time, Andreas Udo de Haes, editor at WebWereld.nl, present in the court room, is covering this. Update: It's on. Update II: Apple claims official picture of Galaxy Tab is rigged. Update III: Lolwut Apple? Update IV: Neelie Kroes is on the edge of her seat. Update V: The judge has upheld the German preliminary injunction. Final ruling on September 9.

I didn't say that. The Samsung ban is silly, but I don't see how a disingenuous lawsuit should lead to a ban on sales for the other company. A hefty fine + damages for lost sales, yes.

Samsung does not want damages for lost sales, they want to sell their phones. There’s much more from a phone sale than just money ‐ it’s all about the ecosystem nowadays.

Being limited (by having a product banned) by the court for a frivolous lawsuit will cost them customers.
It’s only right that Apple incurs the same cost if found to be abusing the courts.
