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.

You are absolutely right, there is a mountain of prior art out there, but of course he who can pay the most lawyers too often has the last word. Nice to see a judge actually do his or her homework.

He probably did his homework on an iPad.
