Apple Loses a Round to Samsung
The intellectual property lawsuits between Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Samsung continue to go back and forth. The latest court decision hurts Apple. A U.K. court said that the Samsung Galaxy tablet did not infringe on any Apple patents. According to Reuters:
The Court of Appeal upheld its judgment that despite some similarities, Samsung did not infringe Apple's design, in part because its products were "not as cool" as the iPad.
The U.S. company was instructed to run ads saying the Korean company did not copy the iPad, both on its website and in selected newspapers.
