Legal Yes, I'm hearing you guys - time to tone down a bit on the patent news. Hence, a summary here of recent developments concerning the various legal cases between Samsung and Apple. Today in The Netherlands, the judge ruled [Dutch] that Samsung will not be able to block the iPhone/iPad from the Dutch market. In the meantime, the Australian courts upheld the preliminary injunction against the Galaxy Tab 10.1, while the American courts ruled that while the Tab indeed infringes upon Apple's design patents, Apple has not yet convinced the judge that that actually matters. Tying this all together with earlier rulings we already covered - it seems like judges across the world are really, really willy-nilly. Update: DailyTech has some detailed visual comparisons between Samsung's and Apple's devices, as well with the various design patents. Huh. You don't say.

Wait, Thom. You forgot one important fact.

Samsung wouldn't get any harm from these legal decisions. Samsung literally "influences" some parts of the South Korean government under Lee Myung-bak's security net.

(Lee Myung-bak = Geert Wilders of South Korea but worse)

It would probably be more correct that Samsung owns the South Korean government.

I don't think that's an accurate statement. Samsung is only a top-tier company that influences this awful fascist-like South Korean president.
