Legal Yes, I'm hearing you guys - time to tone down a bit on the patent news. Hence, a summary here of recent developments concerning the various legal cases between Samsung and Apple. Today in The Netherlands, the judge ruled [Dutch] that Samsung will not be able to block the iPhone/iPad from the Dutch market. In the meantime, the Australian courts upheld the preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1, while the American courts ruled that while the Tab indeed infringes upon Apple's design patents, Apple has not yet convinced the judge that that actually matters. Tying this all together with earlier rulings we already covered - it seems like judges across the world are really, really willy-nilly. Update: DailyTech has some detailed visual comparisons between Samsung's and Apple's devices, as well with the various design patents. Huh. You don't say.

Here is an interesting article from australian news paper, the age, detailing how the court order not allowing samsung to sell the 10.1 tablet in our country is affecting its sales.

Brings up and interesting point that the only people this injuction is hurting are the store based sellers, unable to stock them and that the online retailers who are able to import them from other countries are seeing increased interest and sales due to the injunction.
