Legal This is probably not entirely surprising. The European Commission has announced that it is investigating both Apple and Samsung because they may have breached antitrust rules with regard to patents used as standard in the mobile phone industry - otherwise known as FRAND patents. While the EC states it's investigating both Samsung and Apple, it's likely the investigation focusses on Samsung.

There's only one thing EC should do and that is abolish software patents. Make it EU law and mandatory for all member states. I don't give 2 cents about what one dutch judge may or may not say.
