Legal The hearing regarding the preliminary injunction in the German Apple v. Samsung case is currently under way. Biggest revelation so far? Samsung is accusing Apple of 27 (!) cases of altering pictures, all done to make Samsung's products appear more similar to Apple's than they really are. Like last time, Andreas Udo de Haes, editor at WebWereld.nl, present in the court room, is covering this. Update: It's on. Update II: Apple claims official picture of Galaxy Tab is rigged. Update III: Lolwut Apple? Update IV: Neelie Kroes is on the edge of her seat. Update V: The judge has upheld the German preliminary injunction. Final ruling on September 9.

How is anyone twisting the law?

Apple brought their iThing to the judge, Samsung brought their sThing to the judge, Apple said 'their sThing looks like our iThing and we there is this here law that says their not allowed to do that', judge said 'I agree.'

No one is twisting any laws here.

PS. I love it how you say that a massive APAC company that generates huge profits by paying substandard wages (by western standards) is 'the victim'.

If your talking about Foxconn their the largest for hire manufacturer on the planet and their used by essentially everyone.

That said I would never suggest Apple or any other multinational corporation is a 'victim'.

The use of laws (defined by democratically elected officials) to advance your business is, IMO, perfectly legitimate. Now I don't personally agrees with these laws but that does not invalidate them.
