Legal Summer last year, the Dutch courts ruled that Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 did not infringe on Apple's community designs, and as such, would not be banned from The Netherlands. This was a "quick case", and as such, Apple had the right to appeal and turn this into a "full case". Apple did, but I now think they really wish they hadn't - the Court of Appeal in The Hague has pretty much ripped Apple a new one [Dutch], and upheld the District Court's ruling.

It has quite literally nothing to do with how superior or inferior GTab 10 is. This is a good outcome for everyone, in some sense even for Apple. Because it shows that simplicity can hardly be argued to be as originality.

There is always EU Court of Justice, that oversees these matters. But EU Court of Justice is a much harder institution to crack...
