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.

Bad result for Apple

It seems to me the only thing Apple achieved with all of this was to have it legally proven that none of their claimed innovations are theirs. That's a big blow to a company who has built their brand around being innovative.
