Legal Yet another loss for Apple in Europe - Dutch courts have just ruled in favour of Samsung concerning supposed infringement of a patent detailing ignoring multiple touch inputs, affirming last year's provisional ruling. Apple asked for a ban on loads of Galaxy devices. However, the courts ruled that Samsung and Android do not infringe this patent, also referring to similar rulings in the UK and Germany where Apple lost on similar grounds, while also affirming the British judge's ruling that the patent in itself isn't 'inventive'. Apple has been ordered to pay all legal proceedings, too. In case you're wondering, you're not alone when it comes to pattern recognition: Apple's only true win so far has been in a jury trial in the US. Make of that what you will.

but they've all been fiction so hardly count as evidence.

Sorry, I'm useless at subtlety. You're going to need explain your post a little more ;)

I believe the OP's point was that if there weren't a limit on number of vetoes (which there in fact is), then there's no way Samsung would've allowed Hogan on the jury.
