iPad Better Than Galaxy Tab – Says British Court
Legal proceedings between Samsung and Apple have recently become like a roller coaster which says iPad is better than Galaxy Tab. Apple became the winner, all of a sudden boomed and fell down. Samsung has won in court – but the victory was Pyrrhic, because the presiding judge decided the issue in truly Solomon-style: he closed the case in favor of the Korean manufacturer, but has called Galaxy Tab design less steep, writes Bloomberg. The weaker won.
«They are not so cool»
“Galaxy Tablet is not so simple and elegant, like the ones that Apple produces. They are not so steep, “- said British judge Colin Birss.
As the judge said, so be it. In the future, judges will also rely on this decision. Brilliant. Now, to once again sue Samsung, Apple will have to prove the board that the iPad is much worse than Galaxy Tab. And Apple’s on the horse, Koreans are happy.
Samsung representatives agreed with the court decision approving that they achieved goal they wanted to, applying the claim. Let’s recall you that the South Korean manufacturer self-initiated the trial to make sure that does not violate the Apple rights. Knowing about this, Apple Corporation has sent a counter-claim, and how it resolved – you already know.
The judge’s point of view is simple: all Apple’s struggle with the tablet manufacturers is based on the fact that those allegedly are copying its design. But at the moment there is no manufacturer that makes a design on a par with Apple, so it would be foolish to assume that someone can confuse the iPad with many tablets available on Android. As people say, do not confuse a horse with a unicorn.
In addition, if this patent proceedings have been closed is not as tolerant way, the game could come to a different aspect: the monopolization of the market and the lack of healthy competition. But the war, even the informational is the engine of progress. The judge said the following:
“If Apple will continue its patent policy, and will try to sue everyone and everything, it will only stall progress. Innovation will be severely chilled, and consumers will be quite limited in their choice. ”
But looking at the reaction of the Apple’s representatives, they will end up “to defend the intellectual property of the company,” which means – it will be fun.
