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, 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.

If You carried on with this investigation, You would find out, that the word "patent" in "disgn patent" is derived from the latin word "patens" (certificate), while the term patent (without "design") is derived from the word "patere" (to lay open). This happened because "patent" and "design patent" denote *unrelated* exclusive rights.
