Apple Lose (another) Patent Case in The UK.
UK courts have ruled that there are "recognisable differences" which were "apparent to the naked eye", when it comes to comparisons between Samsung's tablet range and the Apple iPad. Therefore there will be no sales ban, temporary or permanent, of Samsung's tablet range, in the UK.
This comes only days after Apple lost anther patent case in the UK, in that case it was to HTC. The main point of which, was HTC's use of "slide to unlock", which the UK High Court (if I remember correctly), decided was an invalid patent, as it's an obvious way to unlock a phone, not to mention the fact Apple were not the first company to implement a "slide to unlock" feature. A phone called the Neonode N1m, which was released in 2004/5, two to three years before the first iPhone appeared, had a similar unlocking system.
Thank god one country in the world seems to have a legal system in which the Judges have some sense of the real world.
