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.

By now the Galaxy Tab is probably obsolete anyway when considering that the iPad 3 is almost out.

So Apple's strategy has worked. It has kept the GT out of many markets for a long time... And in doing so, sent a message to other tab makers that they should make sure their designs are not too close to Apples.

So in the long run, Apple wins anyways.


So I guess Apple's apologists have dropped the "Apple isn't anti-competitive" claim & have switched to bragging about the effectiveness of Apple's anti-competitive tactics (also known as a "Pyrrhic victory").
