Apple loses another round in Samsung patent war

Written by Peter Scott



Multitouch claim thrown out


Apple has lost another battle in its ongoing holy war against Samsung. On Wednesday a Dutch court ruled that Samsung did not infringe on an Apple patent covering certain aspects of multitouch technology.

Back in September Apple claimed that Samsung infringed on its patent, but the Hague court concluded that this was not the case. The court ruled that Samsung’s Galaxy phones and computers did not infringe Apple’s intellectual property, such as pinch to zoom functionality.

Courts based in the Hague usually serve as places where exponents of certain right-wing ideologies come to die, after winning a free NATO air show and a one-way ticket to a war crimes trial in the UN Security Council raffle. But I digress. Apple has nothing in common with close-minded religious zealots who have a habit of trying to exterminate everyone who doesn’t think like them or wear the same kind of hat. [Or smartphone. Ed]

The ruling is the latest setback for Apple’s patent crusade, stretching over several continents and ten countries. The UK and German judiciary also threw out several Apple claims in recent weeks and months. On Friday, the International Trade Commission is also expected to rule on a similar claim made by Apple in the US.
